Community Outings were established to meet the needs of the less physically able who didn’t have their own transport for outings or relished the companionship of others.  We also hire a minibus once a month for additional trips to places within a 20-30 mile radius, including trips to the theatre and other shows, for meals out and shopping, and even the occasional canal cruise.  Organiser: Dorothy Bone, 01452 855112.

Ladies Who Lunch was started because the St John’s Day Centre closed at the end of 2016.  Once a month those ladies, who have been  friends for many years, are taken to a venue for lunch by the minibus..  The same people are invited each month in order to continue their longstanding friendship.  Organiser:  Dorothy Bone.
