We are all too familiar with cuts in social care spending. The signs of it are everywhere. But it impacts mostly at the local level. Our schools are seeing it. Our care homes are seeing it. Our neighbour is seeing it. We are seeing it. This, of course, throws us back on ourselves as a caring community to ask the relevant questions as to how we tackle it. There are a number of groups in the parish doing just that. I'll not go through the names, except to say that each of these groups is very much in need of more volunteers. Those extra names could make such a difference.
