We have a wonderful coffee morning which has continued all through the lockdown as well. Although it’s been in online, it hasn’t stopped us. We all kept connected one way or other even got that we’re talking every day I am joining courses and I am cheering everybody and we have got a long way to go for the New Year I see lots of plans.

I came out that had a reason to come out and it’s local and in addition, I used to stop in the cafe I discovered everything in community centre courses and I was meeting some other elderly people as well and it was a really wonderful day but we’ve moved on from there we’ve expanded into another area of Cardiff and but we’re coming back here and looking forward to 2021.

We should not be negative we should be positive and encourage other people before getting problems let’s discuss them have a cup of coffee, come along, please connect and I’ll see you there or online bye.
