The Wednesday Group

by | 19 September 2021 | Group meeting, Retford, Social Group, Support Group

One of the nicest things about organisers knowing they could resume Wednesday Group meetings was making contact with members and asking if they’d like to go to their first post-COVID session. It was like meeting up with old friends that you haven’t been in touch with for a long time, absolutely lovely!
They were just as keen to get together again as the Wednesday Group volunteers were to start things rolling. Their fantastic pianist, Frank, was also eager to be involved and will be playing for the group regularly, much to the delight of his devoted fan base among the members.
They are welcoming people in a socially distanced way, which may not seem very friendly but they need to make sure everyone is as safe as possible and not worried. They do ask that people are double jabbed and symptom free when they go. Clearest early symptoms are, loss of smell, chest pain, persistent cough and abdominal pain. See the ZOE app for more information on symptoms. You can find it by Googling ‘ZOE app’ and if you haven’t already downloaded the app, please do so. Your daily symptom report, which takes about 30 seconds, really helps with research and there’s lots of very helpful information on the app.
If you care for someone with dementia or you yourself have a diagnosis, you may find help through the Wednesday Group or the Carers’ Group. For more information about either group contact Jan on 01777 709974 or email janwilliamson133@gmail.com.
