Hope you all enjoyed your Bank Holiday and enjoying the Half Term for those with children....
Things are certainly brightening up and that's not including the gorgeous weather. Positivity is the key to get us through and hopefully everything will open up again at the end of June (fingers crossed). If anyone is or you know someone who may be struggling either with their mental health or financially please do get in touch, if we can help we will try even if it's only for a chat and a cuppa.
