Surrey Choices staff continue to support people at home during the Coronavirus pandemic. From social distancing visits and walks to activities through Digital Choices video classes via Zoom and on our website, ensuring those we support are still active in their community is a priority.

Diana has been asking Surrey residents of all ages and abilities to create a small patchwork square, capturing what has made them feel glad during lockdown. All the squares will eventually be collected and used to create a large artwork that will be shown at Haslemere Museum.
Here is what they have created so far to support the community project:
