I am delighted to introduce myself, Be Mackintosh, as the newly appointed WCSS coordinator. Having previously lived in Hom Green for 14 years I am delighted to be able to contribute back to the community in my new role.
Despite the current circumstances I have been in contact with many of our service users and volunteers and felt very uplifted by the positive coping strategies everyone has during this unusual time.
Our volunteers have been amazing at shopping, collecting prescriptions, walking dogs and just being a point of contact for so many.
Having spoken to many of our service users I was delighted to hear they had been enjoying their gardens, walking with friends and family, and have had coffee with friends over the hedge!!!
Although everyone is missing our social activities especially the coffee mornings as soon as lockdown is over I will organise some events for us all to enjoy.
The WCSS would be delighted to hear from anybody who may have time to volunteer or if there is anybody who needs our support please do not hesitate to get in touch.
