Eight-year-old Ava has been shielding at home with her mum, Lindsay, and sister, Erin Mae.
The family usually visit Little Bridge House.

Ava and her sister have been keeping busy at home during lockdown but as mum, Lindsay, explains, the family are facing some challenges. 

“Ava has a life-limiting heart condition, so we have been shielding for six weeks. Ava is finding it tough but coping well. She understands that going out would be too dangerous for us. 

We are trying to keep to a routine and stay busy. 

Both Ava and Erin Mae have found it tough watching others out on their daily exercise as they can’t go out, and having to speak to their daddy through the window and not being ;able to hug him (as he is working on the front line in the food industry).”
