Friday Friends

Around 30 senior citizens meet most Friday afternoons to share friendship over craft, jig saws, knitting, playing cards, scrabble and dominoes. There is tea and cake, a quiz of some kind and a short epilogue, with a hymn and a prayer.  

The knitting table works tirelessly providing blankets and other goods for those in need. We have a speaker once a term and usually enjoy a trip out in the summer. We also enjoy roast lunches at key moments through the year. We welcome any retired person of all faiths and no faith. We seek to build a caring atmosphere where friendships are developed which often extend beyond the group and can become supportive relationships which are significant if ill health or other difficulties arise. We do all this with much fun and laughter.
