We're back !!!! An update from the Chairman

19th November 2020

Well what a strange year 2020 has turned out to be. Back in March we were all looking forward to a summer of fun events like Millfield and Cool Summer Club along with a host of local activities. Never mind, it feels like we might be turning the corner now and come the spring NSM can rebound and be even more fun than ever. 

I don’t know a single person who hasn’t found these uncertain times challenging. Sometimes it takes a while as individuals to work out how we are going to deal with unusual circumstances. Personally, it took me a couple of months to get my head round lockdown and how to get through the day without all the normal parameters. I am sure I’ve mentioned before that going outside even for a short time makes a huge difference to your day and I really hope you have all managed to do that over the summer months. It is still possible in winter; you just need more clothes.

I know not being able to all meet up is incredibly frustrating but I really believe 2021 is going to be back to normal and the charity will be working hard to make it even more fun for all its members. 

So, stay safe and let us all look forward to starting again soon.
