This friendship group for the over 50s meets on the second Friday morning of each month from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm. The church has the responsibility of organizing the group, with back-up and support from Age UK as and when it is required.
Over the last year we have had an average attendance of 19 people plus 8 volunteers and one Age UK volunteer driver. Each meeting follows roughly the same pattern, beginning with refreshments and informal chat, followed by entertainment and finishing with further refreshments.
The entertainment has been varied to try to meet all tastes and has included various singing groups, talks by those who work in our area, a quiz and puzzle morning and talks, quizzes, visits from charity groups, sing-a-longs, sharing times and simple meals together.
