I just read another members profile and remembered with a jolt, of the days out organised by Gingerbread. I remember after my father died in 1985 of being taken out by the group in their special mini buses and coaches for days out or even sitting in the hall drawing/painting, baking. Such a shame this service isn’t offered anymore, it would be such a great way to reunite communities and meet people. Does anybody else have experience of Gingerbread from back in the day?
Lol, I remember mybmy brothergbrother and I being 20p by the neighbours and that being enough for sweets when went to gingerbread groups.
It’s such a shame you couldn’t find a secretary or treasurer, it really would go someway into rebuilding our lost communities. I’ve actually sent an email to admin to find out if the Croydon group is still active. If it is….well my life is about to take a turn for the better!
Could you perhaps recruit a treasurer and secretary through other social media groups like Netmums? I think now more than ever people will need support. Not everybody has family or groups of friends.
