JOIN US ONLINE!

At the moment we are unable to run our usual activities and events due to social distancing rules and the fact that many of our regulars are still self-isolating.

We know that a lot of you have been missing our social groups, craft sessions, cookery and exercise so we decided to bring a few of our activities to you and set them up on line - either through Zoom or live events on our YouTube channel.

We've been so impressed by the number of you who have taken up this technical challenge - and hope to encourage more of you to do so! And if you need help getting set up on Zoom, please get in touch as we have lots of friendly volunteers to guide you through the process.

So until we resume our face to face acitivites as restrictions begin to ease, why not join us online for one of the activities you enjoy.
