Friends Together Group

Last Updated: 06/02/2024

We are offering adults over the age of 65 a friendly twice-weekly gathering for activities and friendship. The community group for this cohort would be a safe and friendly environment for the members to form long-lasting friendships within. Helps to promote social inclusion.

We meet on Monday and Thursday afternoons from 2 - 4pm. All over 65s are welcome. Refreshments are served and time for chatting and social interaction, getting to know you, then various activities are arranged, such as, singing, crafting, games, bingo, quizzes, talks and keep fit, for about an hour with homemade cake and a drink halfway through. After that is another half an hour for socialising and people begin to drift home.

This is good for wellbeing because

  • This group is good for wellbeing because it encompasses the needs of all people on a mental and physical level.
  • Everyone is made to feel welcome and included.
  • The activities give stimulation without taking over the occasion. It is important to have plenty of "talk time".

I love coming here, it does what it says on the tin. I was in a pretty low place when I first started to come, and I can't tell you how much better I feel now.
