In March 2020 life changed for many of us, but amidst all the bad stuff, people round the world were doing amazing things. Neighbours, community resilience teams, clubs and community organisations rallied round with practical help and support. We relied on each other and made friendships we want to keep as part of our 'new normal'.
The DFEL Friendship Group went digital. On our weekly Zooms we visited Loch Lomond and Skye, met with gannets and had a tour of Dundee's V&A. We worked with the Festival Theatre, Rotary, Community Councol and the Beacon to bring digital concerts and real world cake to a local care home.
We asked people across East Lothian what DFEL should do. People wanted fun and something to look forward to when we can come together again.
Celebrating Communities is our new project and is all about Serious Fun. We'll bring communities and national projects together to create community events and activities to bring fun, joy and hope into all our lives, working digitally and in the real world as we (hopefully) leave Covid behind us.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
Thank you all for your help and support to us and each other.
We wish you, your families and all you love and care for, health, happiness and hope in 2021.
Take care, stay safe

With so much now online, there are so many great resources to help and entertain. We are starting to add these to our website, starting with a long list of brilliant websites with music, crafts, memories, games, and movement.
