IMPORTANT NOTICE - Due to the Coronavirus situation the group is suspended until further notice.
A number of the Group have informally met up, socially distanced of course. We have used King George V playing fields at Elburton and the green at Mountbatten, taking our own folding chairs, hand sanitiser, drinks, coats, sun hats etc. The meet ups have been social occasions to chat and support each other. There is no pressure on members of the group to meet up until they feel ready therefore I also email the people in the group each month when we would normally meet. I can pass on messages and news that members have asked me to do and this helps everyone to remain connected. This will be particularly important in the autumn/winter months and in the event that government restrictions occur that mean we are not able to informally meet up. Topics and discussions have been suspended until we can all meet as a group again. However, the topic which we will focus on when we return will be, you’ve probably guessed.....The Psychological effects of Covid 19. I am sure it will be a lively debate! We have plenty of info out there to research and hopefully the future will bring us the opportunities to socialise again.
The group is full, however, I know that there are a number of people who have made enquiries via members of the current group. I feel that there is certainly enough interest for a second group.
If anyone is interested in discussing this with me I would be happy to help. I coordinate the group and arrange the meetings but topics are chosen by the group, and members take a turn to lead topics and we all do research for each meeting. This does not put pressure on anyone and everyone feels they have a voice.
This is the way this group runs but someone who would be interested in coordinating a second group could find their own way forward with new members.
