Hello All

We would like to collect short accounts of your life during lockdown in Coldstream. This is a moment in time that will hopefully not be repeated and we would like to save it for posterity.
 
We would like to hear from you about your experience of lockdown. If you want this to be anonymous then please just say gender and age range.
 
All we would like is a short account of such things as:
 
   Your situation – are you working or not?
   Are you a family or alone?
   What is your routine, if you have one?
   How are you shopping?
   Did you experience any acts of kindness or otherwise?
   How are you coping with home schooling?
   How have you adapted your business?
   What have you missed most?
   Has someone made your lockdown time bearable?
   How you felt going in to lock down and how you think life will
   change afterwards?
 
All we want is a few paragraphs and you can either email us, message us or leave a sheet of paper in the post box at the Centre.
We want to hear from a true cross section of Coldstream people, from pensioners, from NHS and Care Workers, from shop keepers and workers, from children and teenagers, from everyone.
 
We will collect and collate them all and some time in the future, hold an exhibition in the Centre where they will all be displayed as a poignant reminder of an unusual time.
 
Please share this with as many people as possible and especially those older people who may not be on computers.
