Easter’s Promise of New Hope
Easter is often a time of hope and new beginnings. For those of a Christian faith it represents the time when Jesus was crucified and then rose again from the dead. It is a period of time in the church when the focus moves to the renewal of life and hope for the future. In a traditional year many services would take place across the country over the Easter festival, although this year it will look a little different.
We too are in a time of hope and new beginnings with the Government’s roadmap to lockdown progressing to the next level. From 29th March people are allowed to meet outdoors with a group of six people or two households. Outdoor sports have also started again. As the case numbers continue to decrease and the uptake of the vaccine continues we will continue to move through the lockdown roadmap right through to the summer.
Easter is often the time of year that families meet up (this year in smaller groups and socially distanced) to share Easter eggs with the younger members of the family – although a good chocolate egg is also enjoyed by us adults! With some restrictions still in place there may be some people who are unable to meet up with their family members. It is important that if this is the case for any of your family or friends that you check on them during this time. Perhaps send them a nice little Easter card, or catch up with them on a telephone call or FaceTime chat.
Here at Park Home Life we are incredibly lucky, in that our parks are designed to bring a community of people together and during the pandemic over the last year our residents have been able to support one another and develop the friendships that have been made, with everyone sharing similar experiences. This has helped many of our residents feel less lonely whilst being isolated from their families.
