Go digital

Have an iPad or laptops set up ready to record and invite people to leave their video message for you, better still ask a teenage relative to man it on your behalf.

Apps such as ‘Guests’ for the iPad can be used to record messages, simply tap the ‘leave a message’ button, type a note and press enter.
