It is clear that we will be unable to offer face-to-face meetings for our members for some time.
We continue to publish a monthly newsletter, now double in size, to those on our mailing list. If you would like to receive the newsletter and are not known to us, please send a message via our 'Contact Us' page or send a message via our facebook page. Our newsletter offers up-to-date news, important information for carers including articles about wellbeing, scams, cyber security, keeping connected and specific COVID related information.
We also offer telephone support calls with one of our volunters. These can be a 'one-off' or a regular call, the frequency decided between carer and volunteer. For those of you feeling lonely or isolated, these calls are opportunity for a friendly chat. Our volunteers may provide information about services or organisations if appropriate.
During this pandemic, it has been difficult to raise funds to enable us to continue our work. To help, we are selling face covering sets and £5 profit from each set is donated to Carers4Carers.
Each set consists of a face cover, a zip-topped waterproof bag to hold it in and a hand sanitiser bottle holder. They cost £12 each and you can see them on the Hemiola Crafts website and use the Contact Me form if you want to know more or to buy. Alternatively go to the Hemiola Crafts facebook page. You can send a direct message from the page.

We are holding a Cream Tea.
Do come and join us for a delicious cream tea with scones, jam and cream
followed by a selection of cakes.
This year we are again working with a team of youngsters from the National Citizens' Service who will be helping us with our annual fund and awareness-raising event. This year we're having a change from an afternoon tea and will instead be serving up a ploughman's lunch.
Tickets are now available and we look forward to welcoming you to the Kineton Village Hall on 9th August.
