Friday Club October update

We are now well and truly into Autumn and feeling a nip in the air and those extra layers of clothing are starting to emerge, even more important with soaring fuel bills.

If you are worried about increasing costs and how it affects you, we may be able to direct you to people who may be able to help you. This is not a time to be proud; this is a time to seek help and assistance and stay SAFE.

The group has now been meeting for a month since our summer break and we are all pleased to be back together.
Over the past month we have enjoyed a newspaper debate, sponsored walk for Wivey link, a quiz, which is always a laugh, and to end the month we had a bingo game with prizes for all winners.

Continuing our activities into November and December we look forward to welcoming the Somerset Heritage Trust, Age Concern, giving instruction on chair exercises, an extremely interesting presentation on The Royal Marines and our annual Harvest festival auction. This is just some of the things ahead.

If you have an interesting hobby, interest or career and would like to share it with us in an informal presentation, we would love to hear from you. Please give us a call to discuss further.

We emphasise the Friday club is NOT just a lunch club; we are a social group for our more senior members of our village. Our aim is to try and reduce social isolation and loneliness to offer a safe environment for friendship, enjoyment and laughter. Then of course we tuck into the ever-important lunch.

We are always looking for new volunteers to join our team. They help set up from 9.30am, serve coffee and lunch, and interact with the group. Times and dates can be arranged to fit in with your busy lives and we hope you may be able to spare us a couple of hours.

Hope to see you soon at The Pavilion, Recreation Ground Butts Way, Milverton every Friday 10.30am to 2pm
