Time for Older People runs from 2.30pm until 4pm on Mondays at the church. £1/week and transport is available.
At TOP we almost always have some quizzes to get our minds active, as well as games like Bowls or Curling. We invite speakers to come and talk to us, and we’re always on the lookout for interesting folks to come and talk. We have had visits from the mayor, 1 community, the fire service etc in the past. We sometimes do craft activities – ranging from flower arranging to ceramic tiles etc. Much enthusiasm is on display with varying amounts of artistic capability ?
We also have at least 1 outing a year. This year we have had 2. One to the sea side and the other to a country house.
We have just put together our Shoe boxes for the Christmas appeal run via Samaritans Purse. This year we made up over 15 boxes.
We will be having our Christmas lunch later in the month, when regulars and friends are all invited.
The group is always well attended and good fun, the title Older People was designed specially to cover anyone who considers themselves older with no age group specifically mentioned.
We use the 1 community bus to pick folks who need transport.
Tea coffee and cake are always provided.
