Winnie's Community LoungeBack to Activities
We run groups, activities and training in our community space Monday to Friday every week. We are volunteer-run, supported by our coordinator. We offer a home-from-home environment; warm, cosy and friendly.
Anybody is welcome to attend.
On Mondays we have a coffee morning 10am-12pm and a job club 1pm-3pm. Free internet access and hot drinks.
Tuesday is a Knit & Natter group 1pm-3pm, and our warm space is open 6pm-8pm. Free warm drinks, hot food and activities for all.
Wednesday is lunch club (bookable) 12pm or 1,30pm. Roast dinner, pudding and a hot drink for £5.
Thursday is Warm place 10am-3pm. Our Art & craft group is 1pm-3pm - bring your own project and meet new people.
Friday is Computers for beginners 9.30am-12pm, New course starts in January (Free).
You can come in at any of these time for help, support and signposting, the kettle is always on.
We also have a charity shop in the building next door, and a school uniform bank offering free uniform.
This is good for wellbeing because
- Getting out of the house and meeting new people is great for wellbeing.
- Learning new skills is good for mental health and wellbeing.
- Access to the internet is free here, and we can help you to access support online.
Coming to Winnies has changed my life. I was so lonely and isolated, now I have a new group of friends and I volunteer to run the charity shop that we opened in April four days a week. I feel so much happier and have a purpose in life.
