Loneliness is increasing, what can be done? After living with Penny for more than half a century I don’t know how I would cope if she were to die first, and I hope she would not have to be lonely if I am the first to depart this life.

There are so many lonely people out there, and this is wrong – has technology contributed to this, and maybe people are driven away from their homes and families by economic factors. This is something not dealt with in our Society, and I am glad we are all being made more aware.

There used to be all sorts of Clubs and groups in our village – Cricket club, Snooker Club, Old people’s groups and many more. We still have a Garden Club, a local U3a, and other things to focus on, and I hope and believe that our small community does better than most at looking after one another, whether through the religious groups, or through shared interests.

But living alone is another matter – I fear this most, and yet I would not want to be sent off to a Care home, and hope to always live here in my own home of 50 years with all its happy memories. But in the end all of our fates remain unknown, and are often not of our choosing.
