One of the key areas of concern in relation to bereavement and loss is loneliness especially but not solely for older people.
Those who have always lived with someone and find themselves alone and need help to fill the void in their lives with activities and opportunities for greater social interaction and make new friends.
The friendship club will bring together people for tea and cake, but also for activities, social events, the chance to learn skills or gain advice and information on cooking for one, finances and shopping for one.
This is for bereaved people and for the lonely in the area.
There is scope within the friendship group to bring in other services and opportunities as time passes including a bring and share cake afternoon and a monthly lunch session or similar.
If you are interested in the friendship group please let us know
