OLDER PERSONS

Engaging with the Over 55's

We’ve been working with those aged 55 and over since we began. We have seen the way meeting together, volunteering and receiving support in difficult times can make a difference.

Ageing affects us all differently and our project offers a variety of opportunities and we’re always open to new ideas!

Currently, there’s activities and events running locally that offer local residents somewhere they can join in with activities whilst meeting up with friends; they will feel safe, welcome and maybe make some new friends too!

The Steve Morgan Foundation have supported our work with the older members of our community for a number of years. We are particularly grateful that this support has been extended from January 2023 securing the provision for the next year.

Crafty Corner

Get Creative in the company of friends

A new group for those aged 55 years and over starting in September 2022.  An opportunity to bring along a hobby or craft and work on it in the company of others whilst enjoying hot drinks and snacks.

 

All are welcome regardless of abilities, even if you don’t have anything to work on, you can come and just enjoy the chat or buddy up with one of our members and learn / teach something new.
