The Chit Chat group was started in March 2012, with 2 members at our first afternoon meeting. A dedicated and enthusiastic 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.


We aim to provide:

- Meaningful Activities - Improved Wellbeing

- A connection to the community - Help to maximise the day

- A more fulfilling and enjoyable life

​We encourage a healthier lifestyle or older people
