Reopening of Tea & Chat (now under Young at Heart clubs)

During the first pandemic lockdown last year, we had to close all our clubs. We kept in contact with our previous attendees with regular telephone calls, zoom meetings, garden visits (when possible) and offering a range of activity packs to keep people busy.

However, there is nothing better than meeting up face-to-face with friends for a chat. We are, therefore, delighted to be in the process of reopening our clubs.

We have been working with Dacorum Borough Council and Hertfordshire County Council to put in place plans, in following Covid19 guidelines, to open and run these in a controlled and safe way.

If you are interested in joining or would like to be informed when a club near you is reopening, please call Marie at 01442 259049 (answer phone), email or telephone her on Wednesday afternoons  at  01442 221006 .


Tea and chat


Our Tea and Chat (Young at Heart) clubs are monthly social clubs held in lounges of supported housing schemes for older people to meet, socialise, chat and enjoy a variety of activities and entertainment.

The clubs  (or sometimes referred to as Friendship Teas) usually run from either 10am to 12noon (Morning) 12noon to 2pm (Lunch) or 2pm to 3.30pm (Afternoon). Times vary. Please call to check.
