After isolating since early March, Saffron Walden’s Mencap Society’s Side by Side Club had their first face-to-face meeting on The Common.
Members, volunteers and carers all joined together but ensuring proper social distancing. Members sat in their household groups and wore masks except when eating their picnic. Despite these restrictions everyone said they had enjoyed being able to see old friends and catch up with each other, with a great deal of laughter.
