As with all of us at this time, the Family Centre is coping with the virus as well as we can. The centre has been closed since late March, and up to this moment (6th July) no directives/guidelines have been given by the Government regarding the reopening of Family Centres, so we have to be patient.
It has been a frustrating time, and we have tried our best to keep in touch via phone, through a dedicated Facebook page, messenger and email service – which is firstname.lastname@example.org. Families are invited to let us know if we can assist them and if we can help we will.
We have been able to visit some families at a distance whilst supplying craft kits (through a grant from Community Foundation Wales) and families should be receiving two new books in July generously donated by Book Trust Wales. Some supplies have also been delivered by Netty and we thank her for that.
We have been given lots of useful educational and health links which have been posted on our Facebook page and it is worthwhile having a look at them if you need ideas about what to do at home with the children.
So, wishing all of you well. It seems that Pencader hasn’t been seriously affected by the virus and let’s hope it stays like that.
