Blythswood Update – December 16th 2020

Daniel Centre

The Covid situation in the church’s FEBE nursing home has improved significantly.

Cipri still struggles with his health, more emotional than physical.  André has lost his work for refusing to sweep floors.  Gaby still has no job and brother Daniel has had to give up his job.

Soreen has phoned from Italy, wanting to come back to The Centre.  Marian is not quite into his new flat yet.  Alix’s mortgage hopes are on hold because his working hours are reduced by the Covid situation.

The re-development of Blythswood’s depot goes out for tender in January with work to begin in March and the Blythswood shop there due to close in January.

Most of the residents watch an online church service and then eat together each Sunday.

Adi is more positive again.  TK1 and TK2 are back in action in the mornings, with breakfast and online school lessons though schools themselves are still closed!   No answer yet to his appealing the refusal of their application for EU funds could well be a good sign.
