Fleetwood resident Reece and his four-legged pal Sunny are out & about on behalf of Healthier Fleetwood, meeting with some of the amazing local groups ...

Wyre Wednesdays was set up to help people after the social isolation of Covid.

The founder of the group, Sharon thought to herself “I can’t be the only one feeling this way” and so Wyre Wednesday’s started, since that day the group hasn’t looked back. They help people from different backgrounds, bringing them all together and showing them that they’re not on their own. Sharon really enjoys seeing everyone get together and enjoying themselves.

Janet started attending the group a few months ago, after spending nearly 5 years isolating, due to a family member having been diagnosed with cancer. Thankfully after a long and brave battle, her relative has come through, is now doing very well and it was time for Janet to also venture out into a world she had been cut off from.  A friend encouraged her to try the Wyre Wednesday’s group, and since going to her first meeting she has made great strides, making friends, talking to people and even going out on her own again to go to the hairdressers.

My own experience of Wyre Wednesday’s is that they’re a wonderful group of friendly people, that really care about each other, helping one another wherever possible. They’ve come together from various backgrounds with a wide variety of experiences and shown that they’re not on their own. Everyone made Sunny and I feel very welcome, it felt as if we’d been attending the group for years. They truly are a remarkable group of people with so many stories and anecdotes to tell, of which I heard just a few. Wyre Wednesday’s shows that we really do have so many amazing people here in Fleetwood.
