    Communities rally round to support care home residents

    Kind-hearted communities served by Colten Care’s 21 homes in the south have been doing their bit to cheer up residents separated from loved ones because of coronavirus.

    As movement restrictions from the government have tightened, the family-owned care home provider, Colten Care, has moved from advising relatives to ‘think twice’ about coming in to halting non-essential visits altogether. Friends, families and community contacts have immediately responded by sending in letters, postcards, emails, photos and drawings.

    penpals at Colten Care homes during the Coronavirus crisis Team members at Colten’s Chichester home, Wellington Grange, say they have been inundated with goodwill wishes after a Facebook message by Healthcare Assistant Natalie Agate received more than 2,200 shares, 200 likes and around 150 comments.

    Covid-19: Home schooling across the New Forest

    Useful resources and advice for parents from the British Psychological Society

    boy studying with globe, books and crayons School's out! Except it's not. Schools in the UK are now closed for an undefined period of time for all but the children of key workers, leaving parents to follow school guidelines and home educate their children - whilst at the same time having to work from home too.

    A recipe for disaster? Or precious family time together? Locally we're fortunate to live with the New Forest National Park and the Solent shore within easy reach - do make time to get outside to get fresh air and exercise daily if possible.

    We've gathered here some useful information that could help...

    The whole world has turned upside down and inside out in little more than a week, yet as the excellent Anne Atkins demonstrated in her lovely Thought for Today on Radio 4 this morning (NB last week’s was brilliant too https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p086vsdp ), the ability of humankind to adapt positively to crisis seems to know no bounds.

    Great ideas for Mothering Sunday in the New Forest

    10 ideas for Mother's Day 22 March in the Lymington and New Forest area, including ideas if staying home with Covid-19.

    Mothering Sunday began as a religious event in the 16th Century, with in fact no connection to mothers at all! The word "mothering" referred to the "mother church", the main church or cathedral of the region. It became a tradition that, on the fourth Sunday of Lent, people would return to their mother church for a special service. This pilgrimage was apparently known as "going a-mothering", and became something of a holiday event, with domestic servants traditionally given the day off to visit their own families as well as their mother

For many years Lymingtonians have made their living from the sea or the river - as boatbuilders, fishermen, sailors and in past centuries as salt workers and even smugglers! Today Lymington is an internationally famous yachting centre with a population of almost 17,500.
