Local group has plenty to offer
12:01pm Friday 11th October 2013 in What's on
LOCAL people aged 50 and over are invited to join a Cilgerran based group which offers entertainment, socialising, activities and useful advice.
Olders is a small friendly group which meets every Thursday in Cilgerran Village Hall, 1pm to 2.30pm.
The group also has the benefit of the free Green Dragon Bus, which can take pick up members, however, more people are needed to use this service, or it may be lost.
Local residents are asked to help spread the word about Olders among friends, neighbours and relatives who may have difficulty getting out and about, and would enjoy the experiences the voluntary run group has to offer.
Gemma Lee, who helps run the group, said: “It’s a very friendly small group and we try and help anyway we can, although we are voluntary staff and not carers.
“It is all voluntary run and new volunteers and raffle prizes are always welcome.”
She added: “I know people are scared if trying new things but give it a try once and you might like it.”
Upcoming events include crazy bowls on October 17, Knitting with Julie on October 24 and yoga and Halloween fun on October 31.
Entry is £1 to include drinks and biscuits.
