I became a Mum at a very early age which could have been a disaster in my life, but due to the support I received from my wonderful parents I was able to commence work and create a career. Therefore, throughout that career life, I was until this year involved with the Events Industry engaged in the organisation and setting up of large events not only in Britain but also throughout Europe.
This year due to the Covid crisis the American company that had employed so many of us for many years had no option but to make all it's employees redundant and withdrawal from Britain completely for the foreseeable future. A group of about forty of us have therefore remained in touch through a WhatsApp group and that has been a source of tremendous support for all through the difficult times so many of us have faced.
Therefore, my advise to the OP would be to remain in her group, for once those links are broken they can never be picked up again as people move on and their lives change or even come to an end.
