LET'SGET GROWING

Some of usat MindforYou are keen gardenersand with the beaut iful weather and the evenings get t ing longer, we thought its the perfect t ime to begin your own indoor greenhouse. So, get your green fingersout ! In your envelope you'll find some seeds for you to begin growing.We'd love to hear how your are progressing, see pictures of your germinat ing plantsand maybe themealsyou've created with them. The seeds in the picture above areCarol's and she has kept them in her conservatory where they're thr iving, but make sure you keep themwatered! Perhapswe'll even have a compet it ion in later newslet ters to see who can grow the biggest marrow...

VIDEO CALLING

PEN PALS

We at MindforYou live all over the UK and have alwaysused video calling to speak to one another and make sure we have organised and planned your holidays to the highest possible standard. So, we thought we might int roduce you to ZOOM. Why ZOOM? Well it has the best quality picture and sound for group video calling . Its the systemwe have been using and its what schoolsare now using to teach children at home. It isFREE, safe and can be used on any phone, tablet or computer. So, if you want to take up the challenge you will need aSMART phone, iPad, or computer. However, the bigger the screen the bet ter the exper ience. Carol has created 3 setsof simple step by step inst ruct ions for any phone table or computer.

We're going back to the good old daysand encouraging you all to pick up your pensand t ry your hand at wr it ing a let ter to someone else who's self isolat ing.Wr ite about anything at all! Add jokes, drawings, quizzes, and send it back to us in the stamped addressed envelope provided.We will forward your let ters to othersand wait for a response! Please don't include your addresson your let ter, but don't forget to sign it so they know your name.
