Spring feels like it's starting to spring yet the cold wind gives that gentle pull back to remember our winter hibernations. I've had a cold recently and it gave me 2 days of bedrest and really weird dream. Not sure whether these viruses are getting more 'mental' and so glad to have nutritious food to support better health. At Prime Wellbeing we host events and offer support for suppliers to delivery high quality products through locally global supply chains.
With that in mind I've recently joined Natural Cumbria, a group set up by Hatti who lives in central Lake District, pulling together businesses and services with more conscious consumerism in mind. They have had a couple of markets recently, Keswick and Windermere and one of their suppliers has started a box scheme.
For those of us who don't grow our own, a box scheme is a great addition and something I am looking forward to signing up for now it's being offered by a local producer.
Anyone else wanting to sign up? If we get a few people they will delivery to Grange, otherwise deliveries can be left at a central location in Kendal. If you apply to them directly please do mention that we met David at Windermere and it's to support the 'Grange Pose'.
Next SUMA (food cooperative, delivering whole food health products monthly to Grange) order 18th March if anyone is wanting and look forward to seeing you soon. If you would like to join i can email you login details and how to place your order.
Next DEJA Vue Cinema Club - to be confirmed, thanks for all the recommendations for films - we missed having club last month, Michael is working on a date for those still wanting to see 'Water' and from now, instead of 3rd Tuesday we are looking for people to 'host' a film, suggesting a date and location for everyone to attend if you would like. Drop me an email and i'll pop an invitation emails out to everyone on your behalf.
Next NOURISHMENT for the Soul - 3rd Friday - 1-3pm, Room 6, Victoria Hall
called a Chat Cafe as that is what it is, good chatting in a supportive environment, no topics, no talks - just turn up - we ask for £3 donation to help with room costs and you're welcome to join us for lunch from 11.45 either Butterfingers or The Coffee Pot for pre event refreshments
***to confirm we do not serve cake, it's not that kind of cafe ***

I m not sure if Linda is a Jon Bon Jovi fan but I'm a fan of Linda's. What she and her husband are aiming to achieve is pretty spectacular and my quote a day notebook seemed perfect for this post.
Her passion for the project is palpable, her purpose infectious.
As I look out on our world today, with so much destruction, division and chaos, helping to support projects which bring the sense of community as a global family inspires my passion to get involved.
What if it was my brother who didn't have enough to eat? What if my father didn't have a daughter to look after him when he was in need? What if my mother was destitute and lonely. And what if it were me? Who would I turn to for help and support.
Whether it's your neighbour a few yards away or many hundreds of miles away, when we come together in community we affect the whole. Like the tides of our oceans, they are all connected, merging to form a whole system that ebbs and flows as one. Look at all the issues we have with plastic waste now that the real situation has become apparent and how we can all make simple lifestyle choices to affect a global solution.
So if you are around Grange over Sands this Friday, don your glad rags for a night out with some splendid performers and some even more awesome organisers who are doing something to help our communities to be happy and healthy, and showing that surely that is a basic right for all of us, wherever we call home.
Tickets available from Victoria Hall, Tourist Information Centre
