First Companionship Cafe in Morrisons Elland May 10th

Posted on Updated on

We attended the first ever meeting of the Compassion Cafe run by Home Instead at the Elland Morrisons cafe.

It was a good turnout, enjoying several interesting conversations, amusing quick games, a short but demanding trivia quiz, all in a cozy atmosphere with plenty of tea and coffee and of course biscuits!

If this sounds like something you would like to take part in, keep an eye out for the next Companionship cafe scheduled for early June, exact date to be confirmed.

 

Our Café is open to older people – whether on their own or with a family member, friend or companion but not exclusive. It is ideal for any older person who is looking for more opportunities to get out, enjoy some conversation and meet new people.

These cafes will be run on a monthly basis. Next cafe will be in June, stay tuned for the exact date.

We look forward to seeing you in our next meeting!

Memory Lane Gets Back to full-length afternoon cafe sessions

Posted on

From the start of May 2022 we revert to our pre-COVID arrangement of  afternoon-only sessions (1.30-4pm).  These run for two and a half hours – just as we did before COVID.

Our first afternoon-only cafes (1.30 – 4pm) of 2022 will start at Boothtown (4th May) and Sowerby Bridge (14th May).

We want to make the most of this extra half hour – so we’re asking all of our members what they’d like to do.

Venue: St. Paul’s Methodist Church
Tower Hill
Sowerby Bridge, HX6 2EQ

Every 2nd and 4th Saturday except December when it’s 1st and 3rd Saturday

£2 including refreshments

Upcoming dates: May 14 and 28
Jun 11 and 25
Jul 9 and 23
Aug 13 and 27

For more information call June on 01422 706 373 / 07920 549 131

We’ve been running morning and afternoon cafes (of 2 hours each) since September 2020. We began to do this because of legal (COVID) limits on the numbers we could have in the room and we’ve continued so as to optimise space between people. We’ve been able to continue to operate these “double” cafes for the past 18 months through the efforts and dedication of our wonderful volunteer team.

Whilst COVID certainly hasn’t gone away, we are confident that we can operate safely with larger numbers in a single session. Now that winter is over we’ll focus on ventilating the room to improve air flow (also using a Carbon Dioxide monitor to measure air quality during the cafe).

We’ll continue to sanitise tables and other surfaces. Hand-sanitiser will still be provided.

We have ended the requirement for people to wear masks – but people may, of course, choose to wear them.

Thanks to all our members and volunteers for staying with us through the trials and tribulations of the past two years.
