Group Telephone Activities

For those who find it difficult to get out and about, we run teleconference group activities. An ordinary landline or mobile phone is all that is needed to join and an access code enables a group of callers to join in one conversation.  We have several weekly sessions for you to join, with all different themes depending on your interests. You could attend one group a week, or try them all! Whatever suits you best.

See below for details of each weekly group. (You can also find the details of each Group Telephone Activity on our activities timetable)

Monday Chat
Day: Monday Time: 2pm-4pm
Every week has a different theme! Bring your thoughts, memories and opinions on a wide range of topics, from your favourite place to travel to your desert island disks! This group gives everyone equal chance to speak and listen to others and encourages getting to know each other. This is a great group for making new friends.

Book Club
Day: Tuesday Time: 5:30pm-6:30pm

Each week talk about your favourite books, genres, what you like about reading and share your reading experiences with others.

Day: Thursday Time: 2pm-3pm
A weekly quiz! The quiz varies in theme and difficulty each week, playing to different strengths and challenging your general knowledge! Participants can also suggest ideas of their own for quizzes.

Hear your favourite songs sung and join in with the group singing together. Suggest songs to learn together, any song from any era, with our singing volunteer.
