The Chit Chat group was started in March 2012, with 2 members at our first afternoon meeting. A dedicated and enthusiatic team of volunteers greatly outnumbered members on this occasion.
Numbers at meetings grew and because of the popularity of the group a morning session was introduced in January 2014.
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 do we provide.
We aim to provide:
- Meaningful Activities - Improved Wellbeing

We encourage a healthier lifestyle for older people
