10 of our members have received either hand drawn rainbows from childreno at Lime Tree Nursery or ‘Letters for Our Locals’ from children in our village.


Thank you to everyone that attended our first AGM on Tuesday 26th January 2021. It was decided to hold this event using Zoom after we were forced to cancel a number of previously planned dates due to various restrictions that were in place at the time.  This unfortunately meant that we were limited in time and in reality, some atmosphere.  We were hoping that our first AGM for Barrow Good Neighbours would be an opportunity to say Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers, share some lovely food and drink, and stories of our achievements with lots of clapping and cheering.  Perhaps instead, with a little luck, we can get together safely in the summer, maybe in the park for a picnic, and have a real celebration for the group – fingers crossed!

Thank you again to our Volunteers.

Barrow upon Soar Good Neighbour Scheme were invited to Lonsdale Mews Residential Care Home on 19th January 2021 to collect a number of Activity and Wellbeing booklets that they had recently put together to help support people living in the local community.

We will soon be contacting our members and volunteers alike to tell them about the booklet and to start to deliver them.

We were also given an example of guides available for careers, relatives and friends living with dementia.
