Don’t be lonely this Christmas, there is plenty to look forward to

The festive period can be a great time for some but can be awfully lonely for others, especially for the older members of our community dealing with mobility issues who might find it hard to get about. This is a great time to think about others. You can start by checking on your older neighbours and friends, helping them to stay warm and connected with their community. A short visit for a cup of tea can make a big difference.

Did you know that there are many Christmas lunches and parties in Ealing open to anyone over 65? Last week BriteLives went to two of these Christmas lunches, although we were invited to more. The Salvation Army, United Anglo Caribbean Society, Greenford Methodist Church, Northolt Methodist Church and Saint Mary’s Church, are only some of the places where you could find them. At BriteLives we want to make this information easy to find from our website and social media, so that others can join these events and stay connected with your community.

It might be winter outside but we have found many different things in Ealing that you can do this winter. The Guardian recently warned us about the negative effects of a sedentary lifestyle , specially once we reach a certain age. Have a look at our website and find out more. We have also prepared a January newsletter. Look out for it on notice boards and information centres around Ealing or simply sign up to it by clicking here. Alternatively you can subscribe by clicking on “Sign up to our Newsletter” at the top right corner of this website. This winter we’ll be spreading the word.
