An opportunity for anyone feeling lonely or socially isolated to come along and try an activity or just pop in to sit for a natter and a cuppa and meet new people.

Activities include adult colouring, adult Lego, diamond art, drawing, quizzes, bingo, wordsearch, crotchet, K-Nex...and vary each week as to what's on offer.

FRIDAY ART GROUP - 10:30am - 1:00pm 

Location: St George's Church Hall, Heapham Road, Gainsborough 

Whether you are a budding artist, self-taught or a beginner, all are welcome at our art groups. You have free reign over your designs. 

 

This is good for wellbeing because

  • Because it gives people a chance to get out and meet with others when they would indoors alone.
  • It helps people build up their confidence.
  • People who come along know if they are struggling with health or mental health issues, we can help them make appointments or signpost them to other agencies.

I like coming to the groups. It gives me a reason to leave the house.
