Brighter Mondays is a social isolation programme for people aged 50+ to alleviate isolation and loneliness. The programme is 16 weeks long and covers different activities each week such as arts and craft, shared reading, cookery etc. Participants must be booked onto the course by a staff member so it is not a drop in session, booking is essential. We only run two programmes per year, January and August starts and places fill up fast.
Is a support group for parents/carers of children and young people with learning disabilities. It is run by a local resident who has a child with a learning disability to help other local people. A range of guest speakers are organised to provide information on knowledge on various key issues. This group runs during school term time only.
The snack bar is open to all members of the community. The snack bar sells food and drinks at reasonable prices and is volunteer led, these are also local people. We offer a variety of hot drinks and food such as bacon butties, cheese on toast etc. This runs hand in hand with the games club.
The games club is open to all members of the community in which people come together to play a variety of games such as dominoes, pool, cards and other board games.
