Coronavirus update: Quiet Get-Togethers cancelled and what we’re doing now

TUESDAY 17TH MARCH 2020

Based on the advice from the government this week regarding limiting unnecessary travel and social contact, we have now made the decision to cancel all Quiet Get-Togethers until further notice. In the short-term, this will affect our weekly group at Heartlands, as well as our upcoming Brunch & Beach Walk at Gylly Beach in Falmouth on Saturday.

We understand that this will be disappointing as so many forms of regular social support appear to be withdrawn right now. However, we believe that this course of action is the wisest, most compassionate response, because we all have a responsibility to take measures that limit the spread of coronavirus in order to protect the person who may be more at risk, and also to support our NHS in Cornwall by reducing the need for medical interventions as much as is possible.

We remain unaware of anyone in Quiet Connections’ community experiencing symptoms and self-isolating.  We are aware that there are people within our wider circles who either have symptoms or a confirmed diagnosis of coronavirus and therefore we feel it’s wise to act ‘as if’ one of us could have it too.

Remember that the need to physically distance ourselves from each other actually increases our need to keep a sense of closeness. This is important for us all and we all have a part to play.

Whilst we’re not attending groups, Stacie and Hayley will be more active on social media and checking in with some of you but we cannot do this alone. We are a beautifully supportive community when we’re in each others’ presence (yes, we see you supporting each other; offering that listening ear, empathy, sharing experiences and telling each other you’re not alone and that’s just what we all need) – now it’s time to bring that into digital form too.

Whether you start posting on social media, in our private Facebook group; or messaging or calling someone who you would normally see at a group this week, the small actions that you’ll take really matter. So we ask that you join us in becoming more active on social media in order to maintain connection with each other and us, and support each other through a challenging time. We’ll be active in our Facebook group, especially on Thursday mornings when we would usually have our Heartlands group, so make sure you join us today.
