Message from our Parish Nurse

There’s no doubt we are living in unprecedented and challenging times with social distancing, quarantine, self-isolation and the increasing concerns around the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

Some of you will be feeling frightened and anxious.  I know some of you are taking the opportunity to do some reading, spring cleaning, painting and gardening but I’m also aware that some of you are probably losing your enthusiasm for ‘lockdown’ with holidays  put on hold.

I’m praying particularly for those who are unable to leave their homes because of age or vulnerability. I hope you are feeling able to accept the support available from the community hub of volunteers in your parish and from family/friends/neighbours who are collecting shopping/prescriptions etc.

Here in our North Blackwater parishes, it seems as though our churches and community are really supporting each other in wonderful ways. I’m also aware that some within our parishes are key workers and life goes on as normal but with additional stress levels.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. However, all of this will pass, and life will continue to be lived once again and we look forward to making the most of what we take for granted when that happens.

I don’t know if you’ve came across this poem And People Stayed Home but it’s well worth a read.

Please do feel able to get in touch with me for support, even simply a chat.
