What a turbulent year it’s been, in so many ways. I wonder where we’ll be in a few weeks?
Most of us will be cosy in a place we call home, but for the homeless and the isolated, that’s not a great place. A lot of what we did this year went beyond growing plants and protecting our trees. It’s been about providing skillshops to give people a taste of new things and greeting those who might not have a family or friends.
The community garden is much more than a garden gate. It’s a welcoming smile and a hug for anyone sad or lonely. I’m proud of this, and all the lovely people who provided company and help to those who pluck up courage to step inside the gate.
Wishing you all the cosiness and peace of Christmas. Keep in touch via southseagreen.uk.
