The group meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month 10:00am to 12:00pm then 1:30pm to 3:30pm.

Meetings always start with Tea, Coffee, cakes and biscuits, along with a chat, both with new found friends, and friendships renewed.

Activities at meetings range from board games to Beethoven. Other sessions include Quiz’s, Crafts, Entertainers (including a Christmas Panto), and speakers on a variety of topics. Local schools have been in to entertain and interact with our members, bridging the generations.

A small charge is made on the day to cover running costs, and once a month a raffle is held with proceeds going to group funds.

What is provided

The aim is to provide:
– Meaningful Activities – Improved Wellbeing
– A connection to the community – Help to maximise the day

In all cases the aim is to encourage a healthier lifestyle for older people.
