Advent of a Greener Future?


Profile: Oaklea, 21st Dec, 2021

​Tis the Christmas gift that keeps on giving….& more to the point the advent of a new (positive) day!

We’re making a date - again!

Last year we featured in the NCF (National Care Forum) Advent calendar with a video and features on how we had responded to Covid19 across our communities.

Now we’ve done it……..2 years in a row!

Not to be outdone…we’ve also made it onto this years CCF (Cumbria Community Foundation) Advent calendar

Green Mentors are GO

Big big thanks to CCF & Westmorland Family Community Fund and of course our partners Ernest Cook Trust.
