Friendly Faces

'Friendly Faces' meet on a regular monthly basis in the Church Centre on the first Friday of each month at 2pm to provide an afternoon of friendship and hospitality for our elderly and housebound in the local area. 

Our guests are welcomed and cared for during the afternoon by a dedicated group of

volunteers, whose aim is to instil a feeling of friendship and encourage those present to remember that regardless of advancing years and infirmity they are still very much an appreciated, respected and valued section of the local community.

Time is always given for socialising, meeting up and enjoying the company of old friends whilst making new ones.  Each month there is some form of entertainment, activity, demonstration etc., followed by a light afternoon tea.

This free monthly event is open to all the elderly and we would love to see our still growing membership increase even more, with transport to and from the Church Centre being provided where necessary. 

If you need transport to and from the Church Centre please contact Josie Armstrong on 01670 819179 and she will be more than happy to arrange it. 

To quote some of the recent comments from our 'Friendly Faces':

"It has made a real difference to my life, I enjoy coming very much, and I am so glad I joined." 

"I look forward to meeting my new friends each month, the entertainment is varied and interesting and with the kindness of everyone

I hope 'Friendly Faces' goes on for many years to come."
