Christmas is traditionally a time many of us associate with comfort, joy and time spent with loved ones. The New Year we associate with new starts and the promise of better things to come.

During the Covid 19 pandemic a number of Facebook support groups have been set up. We have listed as many as we can find here. Please let us know about others.
