Tea & Chat

Every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month come and join us in St Matthew’s Church Hall. Please join us for a cup of tea, home-made cake and conversation twice a month on Thursday afternoon.

We are very informal and friendly and have a varied programme of activities which may include fun quizzes, board game afternoons, seasonal craft activities, beetle drives etc and guided reminiscence sessions from the Alive! Group.

We generally cater for the more senior members of the community but anyone who is free on Thursday afternoon is very welcome.

If you would like to come or know anyone who would like to join us please contact Jackie or the church office. Lifts can be arranged.
