Successful good neighbours coffee morning reunites old friends
PUBLISHED: 10:01 24 June 2018
An inaugural coffee morning by Biggleswade Good Neighbours proved a great success and could now become a regular event.
More than 30 clients and volunteers attended the event on June 9, which allowed isolated and lonely community members to socialise and even emotionally reunited two old school friends.
Phone rota team member Sarah Nobbs is new to Good Neighbours and was delighted with how the morning went.
“It was great to speak to so many people and finally put faces to voices. There’s such a positive atmosphere here,” she said.
There was also a lot of positive feedback from those who attended, with one long-term client remarking: “It’s an absolutely amazing service, I’m so grateful. They’ve helped me a lot over the years and you can always rely on them being helpful and friendly.”
Biggleswade fire fighter Chris Mattingley was also at the event to give a talk on fire safety, which was ironically cut short when he was called out on an emergency.
