Christmas is a time of families and friends getting together and enjoying festive food, and having fun with each other.
We also have to remember that for many it is a lonely and emotional time when family members, and friends are no longer with us – especially as we get older. People often face a Christmas alone.
If you know someone locally that needs a boost invite them in for a festive drink – giving even an hour to someone living alone will make a world of difference to them.
I wish everyone a Merry Christmas, and hope the New Year brings new beginnings that you can enjoy.
