on relocating we need to find constructive ways of connecting with our clan

Say hello to your neighbours, get to know them

Attend events that interest you to find like-minded people – shows, library

Frequent the same café to get to know the staff and their regulars

Join a group of interest – yoga, walking, cycling, swim locally

Brunch – invite some friends and ask them to bring someone, extends the circle

Reach out on social media, use them or start blogging

Volunteer as fellow volunteers will have other connections – radio, thrift shop

Trade – your excess with others, a great alternative to our materialistic society

Talk to the growers at your local farmers market

Join your local community garden – grow veg while connecting
