How was the weekend? Did you enjoy the Spring Equinox? It means that the days are getting lighter for longer, warmer and the soon we will have the blossom and spring flowers. I have noticed that flowers are starting to come up and you must have seen Daffodils around your area recently.
I do not know about you, but I always feel more positive and upbeat when spring arrives and I am glad to see the back of the dark mornings and want to get out more for fresh air, nicely times for the relaxed lockdown rules.
However, make sure you know what the rules are as they are changing a lot in the few weeks and most importantly keep safe, remain distanced and always wear a mask indoors shopping and crowded places.
Talking of getting out as spring is here, we are pleased to announce that on the April timetable Walking Wednesdays is back, so if you fancy having fresh air, a lovely walk with likeminded carers then this activity is for you, please book a place.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for a place in any activity.

Yesterday was World Down Syndrome Day and wanted to do a big shout out to the Parents, Carers, and siblings of people with Down Syndrome but most importantly I wanted to give a big virtual hi fave to everyone with Down Syndrome and say you make the world a more interesting and vibrant place.
