Isolating and shielding, particularly, if on one’s own, is an emotional wellbeing challenge for us all.
At Calder Community Cares, Isolators and Volunteers work together, along with local musicians, creative artists of all kinds, shops and businesses to create socially distanced, outside events, that happen in our community spaces.
Whether it’s a surprise for a Special Birthday or Anniversary or, quite simply, some damned good entertainment, just for FUN – because WE CAN!
We endeavour to accommodate as many ideas, needs, requests, as reasonably possible.
Nicola Mills, a local singer with a difference, has provided us with some absolutely fabulous, Opera for the People’, in our streets and on the village green.
The Co-op has provided us with a take home tea and treats.
The photos of all the smiling faces and the lovely comments afterwards speak volumes for the impact on emotional wellbeing and pleasure experienced by our Community Friends at our events:-
A lovely, lovely surprise
I really enjoyed every bit of it, so talented
I could listen to it all again, loved it
It was the best hour I have had for a long, long time
Possible forthcoming events, ideas include 1940’s and 50’s big band sounds and swing jive – doing what come naturally! And a Lockdown Community Food Fest.
