Ellie Stone contacted us via the Facebook page today. She’s part of a team running the Girl’s Friendly Society group in Stanwix. For years it would meet in the parish rooms at St. Michael’s. My own daughter went there for a few years back in the mists of time.
Well… like so many things lockdown put paid to their sessions. At least it did for a while. Like so many organisations, they’ve Zoomed across to the virtual meet up environment.
I am part of a team that is running a free group supporting girls in and around Stanwix, and wondered if you’d be able to help us spread the word? I thought I’d share as it might be of interest to some of your followers.
It’s so difficult for young people at the moment, especially now schools are closed. Our group trying to make sure girls still have a connection to the outside world and their friends. We also have trained local volunteers running the group so they can support girls’ mental health.
It’s a free online group over Zoom and we’re part of GFS, which is a registered charity, so all legit. We meet on Mondays from 6.30-8pm and girls aged 7 and up can sign up here https://girlsfriendlysociety.org.uk/stanwix
Here’s a flyer if you’d like it and are able to post about this or help spread the word in some way. Of course happy to answer any more questions you have about the group too.
I hope you’re finding ways to be ok during lockdown number three. I know how difficult it is and what a long year it’s been. Thank you for the support this page gives the local area.
