So before Covid our Gold Duke of Edinburgh group worked on creating a newsletter to tell you all about what’s happening at Live! and although it’s been a bit delayed in arriving it’s a nice reminder of how life used to be before lockdown and how, fingers crossed, it will be again sometime soon…
So please follow the link to download and enjoy our first ever Live! Newsletter…
We have started a new project during lockdown, Matthew Moore has begun creating a podcast featuring members of Live! talking about their positive and negative lockdown stories/experiences and their desert Island Discs. In this first episode his guest is Amy, we hope you enjoy listening – if you want to get involved email firstname.lastname@example.org
Some of you may or may not know that back in September we said goodbye to Anna Norbury who very sadly suddenly passed away.
Anna had attended Live! for a very long time and was a popular member of Patchwork Company and Next Event.
She will be missed by everyone here as she touched all our hearts in such different ways.
With the blessing of Annas family we would like to remember her by having a memorial bench and tree here at Live!

Post Lockdown Activity
Part 2 2020
As time has progressed, so has the level of activities on offer at Live!
Funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund, has helped us to continue and increase our coronavirus offer to our members. The gardening, cycles and walks continued
and we started our outdoor fitness sessions with local gym “Rage Fitness” providing adapted fitness sessions. Thanks to the government for making these outdoor activities possible.
Post Lockdown Activity
Part 1 2020
As we left lockdown in the summer Live! was able to begin outdoor activities with rigorous risk assessments and social distancing in place, we began the process of opening up our cycling, gardening and walking sessions with staff – all the activities allowed the staff to converse in a safe manner.
Our young people were relieved to be able to have a sense of normality in their lives once again and a bit of routine.
Being outside and taking part in activities is well known for being beneficial to mental health – this is what influenced the Live! Cheshire staff decision to choose these activities.
