As more and more people are having to self-isolate, I am also aware that this can bring loneliness and feelings of isolation.  Although I can’t provide visits, we can talk on the telephone or keep in touch via email.  If you would like a chat please do not hesitate to get in touch and either myself or a church member will give you a call.  My telephone number is 01952 820217 email helen.morby@
