As there are issues with Age UK Redbridge working in partnership with GoodGym they have been unable to supply an official coach so I have become an Age UK befriender with an older person about 5k from home. Visits were banned during lockdown but last week befrienders were given the go ahead to recommence visits. Yesterday was my first visit since March. JJ is a lovely person so easy to talk to and so pleased to see me. It’s a pleasure to visit with my unofficial “coach”. I am not permittted to identify JJ So the photo is of my Mum and Dad in whose memory I make these visits.
