LALG is run 100% by volunteers

What does being an LALG member mean to you? Meeting new people; having fun; trying new activities?
Members who volunteer to help run activities or work behind the scenes of LALG get so much more!

Graham: “Editing the newsletter is a chance to use and build on my IT skills. And running the computer group is so rewarding; helping others to get more out of their computers and understand safe working.”

Meet a member: Leon Fotiadis & Aliki Fikiori

Leon and Aliki first joined LALG around 15 years ago to go on a walking holiday. Now, many walks later, Aliki has joined the Daytime German group and the Easy Riders cycling group. She also volunteered Leon as an editor for this newsletter! He produced the May 2021 edition and plans to do more. Leon said: “Doing the newsletter, I was really impressed how many good people offer their time to LALG.“

LALG Chair, Elaine Fox, looks at life beyond Covid

As the evenings are getting longer (and hopefully warmer) and lockdown measures begin to ease in line with the government’s roadmap, we have been thinking about what LALG can offer going forward.

I appreciate that everyone will have their own comfort zone. Some members will still be cautious about mixing whilst others will be raring to get out and about again and to see people for real, not just on Zoom.

Lockdown Quizzes

There was such an outcry when we said Lockdown Quizzes would end in May that we have decided to restart them in the Autumn, with a new name.

Lockdown quizzes came about by chance when the 2020 Annual Quiz had to be moved online by the organisers, Ann and Andrew. “We did not dream it would be so successful or become a monthly event.” said Ann. “The emphasis was on breaking down social isolation. Only text questions were used, no pictures, so people could join by phone if they weren’t online.”

Talk: Citizens Advice Bureau

We recently had an excellent talk about Citizens Advice Bureau with particular reference to North Herts.

The Citizens Advice North Hertfordshire 'slogan' is: Free support and advice when you need it
Its promise is : Local charity, available to all, offering free confidential help and support
