Phone a friend


GPS are to prescribe a ‘ phone a friend’ service to people suffering from loneliness (Mail).

Churches in my village set up such a service at the beginning of lockdown and it’s still going strong.

BARBARA THOMAS, Billingshu­rst, W. Sussex. THERE’S no need for a GP to prescribe me phone calls as I get a constant stream from friends I didn’t know I had.

There are those who ring to tell me there’s a problem with my computer and offer to fix it if I tell them all my passwords; others who suggest I claim compensati­on for a car accident I’d forgotten about; callers

urging me to move my money to another bank account; and friends stranded overseas who can only return if I send them large sums of money. I didn’t know I was so popular.


Westbury, Wilts.
