A Place to Meet Do and Enjoy

Who we are.

We are local people who want to meet others; do something together; avoid loneliness and have a bit of company and fun every Monday afternoon between 1pm and 3pm in the church.

 

What we do.

The main thing we do is provide a safe, warm and friendly space for people of all ages and abilities and disabilities. Tea and biscuits are always available. Dee, Barbara and their helpers will give you a warm welcome, and then it is up to you whether you would like to try any of the activities on offer.

 

What does it cost?

Nothing! We value you more than your cash!

 

But, we give you the opportunity to make a totally voluntary contribution whenever you are able. All our group leaders give their time and talents freely. The church only asks us to pay for heat and light if we have something left in the kitty.

 

For more information, contact Alan Stanley.

 

Activities

Try your hand at watercolour painting, either reviving an old skill or starting from scratch. Brian will be there to help and encourage.

Watercolour Painting

Judy and Shirley will guide you in making a card for that special person or event. Margaret will knit or crochet with you, and everyone on the large friendly craft table will welcome you.

Crafting

If tracing your family tree is something you would like to do, George is a fount of knowledge and with his live online access he can help you with your search.

Family History

Need to keep those joints from stiffening up? Tony from beyond inspired will guide you professionally and gently through some char based movement.

Gentle Exercise

If you enjoy games we have dominoes and scrabble available and plenty of jigsaw puzzles to challenge you! We also play mini carpet bowls, with Pete on hand to guide the novice!

Games and Jigsaw Puzzles

Meeting in the hall, the Brass Group is led by John and Sally and is made up of novices to experienced players. Everyone is welcome to have a go, even if you have never played an instrument before.
