Hugs and handshakes as residents reunite

piccotts-end-coffee-morningAfter more than 12 months of restrictions residents lost no time in renewing old friendships at the PERA coffee morning. More than 40 took advantage of being able to meet outdoors, exchanging hugs and handshakes at the Marchmont reunion. It was also an occasion to meet new residents and a new arrival – baby Phoebe of Wall Cottage! Proud parents Kate and Ian were there along with other recent arrivals to the village, Sam and Andy of 138 and Steph and Adam at 142. PERA’s social secretary Annette Harrison said ‘What a lovely occasion. It was so nice to see so many residents enjoying themselves. We are also very grateful to the Marchmont Arms for being so helpful in allowing us to meet there.’
