At the beginning of June, we decided it would be a nice gesture to make up some welcome back packs to give to groups ready for when the Neighbourhood Centres reopen on 21st June. We included all the essentials including tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits as well as some hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes. We also put in some posters/information which can be displayed around the Centres to help to keep people safe. Unfortunately, the opening of the Centres got delayed until Monday 19 July, however, we decided to go out and deliver the packs to the Chair of the group at their homes. The packs were very well received, and the groups were very grateful for them, they were also very pleased to see us and have a chat. They all said how much they are looking forward to the Centres reopening and to start and use them again. They have missed getting together over the past 16 months.
“Carol and I had a really lovely surprise this morning, when Rachel and Rob called from RotherFed and brought Coffee, Sugar and Biscuits etc in readiness of the opening of the Centre which is hoped to be re-opened in the near future.
This was a very kind gesture from RotherFed which is much appreciated”. Quote from Keith Stringer after we dropped off a welcome back pack.
