Magic Moments! We’ve been awarded £500 from Magic Little Grants.

In partnership with Postcode Community Trust, Magic Little Grant from Localgiving has awarded us £500 to support our Monday afternoon Chairobics activity, securing it for a further year.

The session has gone from strength to strength since we instigated it two years ago, with over 25 people taking part regularly. It runs from 1.30-2.30pm on a Monday afternoon, although many participants stay after our coffee morning, or arrive early to have a chat and a cuppa. And often, there’s more chat afterwards! It’s hitting all the right notes with regard to gentle physical exercise for those less mobile, and offering a chance for people to meet and make friends. Drop by anytime!

The Postcode Community Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Localgiving is the UK’s leading membership and support network for local charities and community groups.

Activities

Start the week off well with our Monday morning Drop In Cafe

Walderslade Community Hub

Our open cafe welcomes everyone on a Monday morning for good company and chat over a nice cup of tea or coffee.

From 9-11am, make new friends and meet up with old ones, as we throw open the doors to our warm and cosy cafe. Hot drinks are just 50p each, with squash available at just 10p. Biscuits are included!

We often have visitors drop in, offering various help services. Hi Kent is with us the second Monday in the month (from September 11) and Age UK are coming along on September 18. Cleo from Porchlight often drops by too!

The session is immediately followed by Board Games with WALT, but you’re welcome to stay and natter.

We look forward to seeing you!
