Winter- Christmas Community Spirit

At the Community Conversations we've been having, a number of people have shared their concerns of what winter and Christmas time are going to be like for all of us, especially as we enter a new lockdown.

Older people are already worrying about being alone; those who are facing financial hardship are worrying about how they will afford essentials - and everyone's mental health is going to be tested.

And yet people are remembering the hope and the community spirit that blossomed during the first lockdown.


This has prompted to ask us- what can we do in our own homes, our streets and throughout our relationships to bring a spirit of connection? And what would we need to make this happen?

And what Christmas lights have people put up in their windows and houses? Add yours to the map below.

Christmas lights- help to map them

8 months

Lots of people are decorating their windows, homes and business with Christmas lights. 

A resident suggested it would be great to map these, so people can walk around and see them. 


Use the map to add the places you know of. Drag the pin to the approximate location of the lights- add a photo too if you have one.
