Holiday Update 2 - 15th April
Happy Easter! We hope you managed to celebrate the season in some shape or form, albeit quite differently to how you've ever done in the past. The weather has been beautiful and for those of you fortunate enough to have some outdoor space, you will no doubt be making the most of it.
We are now in the season of Easter, which lasts for 50 days, from Easter Sunday until the feast of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit came down to guide the church. Our Diocesan Bishop, Philip, is inviting everyone to join him for daily services from his private chapel over the Easter season - you will find the link here:

Staying Well at Home
The Local Authority have sent some advice on looking after ourselves at this time - we have printed it below.
It’s important during this time of crisis and lockdown that we do things to take care of ourselves and the people around us. There are lots of things we can do to help us stay well in body and mind at home.
Take care of yourself: even if you’re not leaving the house, make sure you shower and wear clean clothes. Eat well and stay hydrated – try to keep to regular mealtimes and make sure you drink lots of water.
Get active: exercise is really important for keeping our body and mind well. Get moving in a way that works for you, either outdoors (once a day) or at home.
Keep your mind active: set yourself small goals for the day like finishing a puzzle, texting a friend – completing things will give you a sense of achievement. You could also take the opportunity to learn a new skill.
Stay informed, but not too much: there’s a lot of information out there. Check your sources – trust government advice, the NHS and the Council website. If you’re getting overwhelmed maybe limit the amount of time you spend reading news or social media each day.
Look after your mental health
