Friendship Matters

Friendship for seniors –

A new project for The Lounge piloted in April 2019, thanks to funding from The Big Lottery. Aimed at reducing isolation and loneliness in the community, we saw the launch of our friendship group for those aged 50+.

We offer a varied programme of events alongside regular features. Flower arranging, advice on home safety, mindfulness and musical bingo are just a few of the sessions that we have delivered to date. A schedule of upcoming events can be found on the noticeboard in the cafe.

Where and when –

Meeting on a Monday in the cafe, the group runs from 10am – 2pm and is led by a dedicated community worker. Visitors to the group can simply pop in for a cuppa and a chat or stay for the whole session. A subsidised lunch is available to purchase alongside hot and cold beverages.

Friendship matters and here at The Lounge you can be assured of a warm welcome. To find out more pop into the cafe and speak to a member of the team or contact: [email protected],uk
