Seasonal Easter: Friday Friends Club for retired people, with quizzes, knitting, chatter, and friendship! One of the Church’s Community Groups.
In lockdown or Tier 2 this is replaced by weekly deliveries to 45 households of newsletter, treat, quiz and puzzles supplemented by phone calls. In Normal times and Tier 1 around 30 senior citizens meet most Friday afternoons to share friendship over craft, jig saws, knitting, playing cards, scrabble and dominoes. The knitting table works tirelessly providing blankets and other goods for those in need. There is tea and cake, a quiz of some kind and a short epilogue, with a hymn and a prayer.
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.
