One of the very interesting discoveries to come out of our Property and Community Review at the Parish Council, was the high level of loneliness that goes unseen - especially among young males. Fantastic work has been done by our own parish reps for this project lately, and what was profound, and worrying, is the level of isolation in our local communities. Perhaps it is a call to arms for us to really dig in and locate these anonymous people, and to look at the facilities we have in all our parish properties as a means of helping.
