Horsfall House: Whilst the League’s Respite care accommodation continued as normal until March 2020, it was abruptly suspended once it became unsafe for it to continue, and remained so for the rest of 2020.

Weavers Croft: Social distancing measures severely impacted on the delivery of both the Men’s Shed and Gardening projects at a time when the need for mental health support was at its greatest.

Stroud Maternity: While continuing to deliver babies, albeit under new and onerous Covid restrictions, midwives were unable to continue with the pre- and post-natal yoga and singing groups. However, the yoga was quickly transferred to online groups and the League of Friends was able to support this.

Meetings: Trustees meetings and GHCFT Chair’s meetings were conducted by Zoom and members were updated on our activities via newsletters. Our AGM was postponed until April 2021, also to be conducted via Zoom.
