Working in partnership with Cambridgeshire County Council’s Innovate and Cultivate Fund, Huntingdon Town Council have secured funding to run a programme to support older people in Huntingdon.
The sessions are held between 9am and 1pm every Wednesday and will run until March 2021.
If you are over 65 you can attend the Medway Centre (and then the new Coneygear Centre when it opens) and enjoy a morning of activities. There will be no cost to start with, but a £2 fee will be introduced when the programme moves over to the new centre (which purely covers the cost of food).
As part of the programme, everyone attending has the opportunity to make new friends, partake in gentle exercise, receive advice and support from lots of different organisations, get help with any problems they may be facing, play general board games or puzzles, take part in arts and crafts and receive a nutritious hot lunch, including lots of tea, coffee and biscuits.
In addition, the Town Council are hoping to set up a monthly Dementia Carers Support Group.
If attendees want to stay beyond 1pm then they are welcome to join the bingo session (a charge applies for this) which starts at 2pm.
If this is of interest please contact the Medway Centre in Huntingdon 01480 388 677 and speak to either Sally or Shilpa.
The capacity for each session is 100.
