Hello Stratford!

I hope you are all coping with the new lockdown. Such a shame we are in this position again, but hopefully the Stratford Wellbeing Month I've created with Stratford Time Bank can help you with the pressures and uncertainties surrounding us all.

The second week of the programme  is all about stress - quite apt, I'd say! I speak to Tracey from The Purple Hat Coaching Company about what stress is, why we need it and how, in her live session on Wednesday, we can find out more about ourselves to learn new ways to deal with our stress and become more resilient. To book your space, email me at [email protected] with your name and postcode and I will send you the details. Spaces are filling up. If you can't make it, you can watch a recording of the session on the new Stratford Calling YouTube channel. As with all things to do with mental health, if you have an existing condition, or are unsure about attending, please speak to your medical professional before signing up.

In this episode I also speak to Nick who started Laptops4Learners at the end of last year, to help reuse old laptops and computers by updating them and giving them to students who are unable to access online teaching during the lockdowns and self-isolation. It's a great initiative and if you have an old computer knocking around at home, you can donate it to them to help local pupils get the education they deserve.

Thanks for listening everyone. Enjoy! 

Take care and speak again soon.
