LOOP Neighbourhood Connector for Stonehouse
"So after being off for a little while (due to the pandemic), I am back and raring to go! I am really looking forward to rekindling old relationships with hosts and generating new ones. It will be interesting to see what sort of ideas the community will come up with.
I think it is important to try and get the children out doing things together after spending so much time at home. They really thrive on interaction and one of my main focuses will be activities to include them. Another of my main focuses will be to help the elderly and isolated to get back into the community again. It has been a very wary and scary time for everyone, but we are now looking to a somewhat normal future.
One of the ideas that I am interested to propose is a ‘Community Post Box’. It would involve people of all ages writing a letter to put into the community post box to start with, in order to find a pen pal of sorts. I understand some people aren’t rushing to get involved physically with community events just yet, with so much uncertainty still around, so I thought that this would be an interesting way for people to keep in contact and meet new people the ‘old fashioned way’.
I aim to get back out into the community to see what sort of things they would like to see happening and to see if they would be willing to assist and support making these ideas happen."
