MAY I take this opportunity through your publication to thank the organisers from The Friends of Lodmoor Park for all their efforts and time in ensuring the success of the trail table top sale which was held on Sunday.

Each participating household paid a nominal fee of £5 which will be used to help with the parks upkeep and the monies made from the sale of unwanted items the house-holders got to keep.

A win win outcome!

However, aside from the raising of profits for all concerned this event raised the spirits of the Lodmoor community.

New neighbours introducing themselves to established residents; people living alone coming and joining in the social interaction; generally a feel good atmosphere for all.

I feel if there were more local events such as this one there would be an increase in people’s mental well-being!
