We made the decision that TED will not continue to offer group activities, and we have supported the TED Friendship Groups to make the decision to cease holding meetings with immediate effect.
With many of our TED volunteers and members self-isolating, the TED Team have been working to find new ways to help the over 50s in East Lindsey. A list of the interim support available can be found on this page with our updated ConnecTED Friendship Offer.
We are here to support you
There are a number of ways we can help if you are in self-isolation or are concerned about the advice around Covid-19. We are offering the following free services:

If you are not interested in the services listed above, you could help us to lift community spirit by joining our KnitTED Together Community Action Campaign.
We are asking people to Yarn Bomb. Yarn bombing goes by a variety of names; yarnstorming, guerrilla knitting/crocheting, urban knitting/crocheting, and graffiti knitting/crocheting. Yarn bombing is a type of street art or graffiti and the main motivation is to bring life, warmth, and a feeling of belonging and community to where you live.
If this is something you are interested in then please feel free to decorate your home and gardens with knitted items or patters. A link to some available patters can be found here.
The KnitTED Together Community Action Campaign is not just for experienced knitters, if you have never picked up needles before please think about having a go!
We at TED would love to see what you have been knitting, so please send pictures through to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be posting your hard work on our website and social media to show how the East Lindsey Community is ConnecTED Together!
We have been working hard with our Delivery Partners to create some helpful guides for you to access from home. Please find the guides from Lincs Digital about accessing digital services at home here.
