Friday Club February update

Here we are again for another month of sharing of what is planned for the Friday Club in February. This month we are trying out a new approach; hopefully it will encourage new members to join our wonderful group. We are inviting people to come along and just join in our events, activities and presentations without staying for the member’s luncheon.

You will be most welcome for a small fee.

Our doors open at 10.30am for coffee until about 11am from whence the day’s activities begin. We provide a range of presentations, topics and activities for everyone’s enjoyment.

If you require transport, we work closely with Wivey Link so you may consider speaking to them as an option.

Our programme for this month is:

  • 3 February. Bingo. We use bingo cards with sliding windows to cover the numbers and do have our volunteers to assist if needed
  • 10 February. Singalong, maybe a little dance if you would like to join in, great fun
  • 17 February. Age UK seated exercises You can do as much or as little as you want to do
  • 24 February. Home safety fire protection.

This presentation is by a representative of the Fire Service and offers everyone the opportunity of a free home inspection if wanted, including the testing of smoke detectors. The detectors can be replaced if needed. The Fire Service also support you if you have a hearing or visual impairment. We have had this presentation before but the information is useful to refresh our memories. It is well worth having this return visit.

We hope this will garner interest to join us. Our current membership is from 72 years  to 93 years, come as a possible stranger but leave as a friend. A great way to meet and make new friends.

If you are considering coming along for the first time, please give me a call so I am able to estimate numbers for either the drop in or full attendance.

We are always looking for new members and volunteers to join our team

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