Mrs Smith’s Cottage Newsletter – February 2021

Happy New Year!

The new year is a time for resolutions and setting yourself goals for the coming year. Our team are always inspired by Mrs Smith and have set realistic goals inspired by her life and ethos. Both Sally, our learning officer, and Jade, our heritage officer, have been inspired by Mrs Smith’s low waste lifestyle and are challenging themselves to avoid buying new clothing this year. Instead they will look to repair, find alternatives in their existing wardrobe, and shop second-hand (if a new item is really needed). 

What are your New Year resolutions?
