South Brent & District Caring at the Old School Community Centre:

Activity Coffee mornings fortnightly on Mondays from 10.30am – 12.00noon, are very much appreciated by people who don’t get a lot of social contact and who love a chat, a game of something and a cuppa. Do drop in if you’re passing – it’s a good way to get a feel for some of the work SB&DC does.

Lunch Club fortnightly on Mondays (alternating with the coffee mornings) from 12.00-1.15pm for a delicious 2 course lunch and friendly conversation, all for only £3.50 (including free entry to a raffle). Bring a friend or come on your own – no need to book.

South Brent & District Caring is now hosting a weekly Wednesday Club, in the Old School Community Centre from 2-4pm. These Wednesday afternoons are open to anyone who fancies some company, games or singing, particularly those who may be caring for a loved one and may not be able to get out very much – loved ones are also very welcome. Everyone is welcome - please do come along and join us! The club incorporates the already popular Memory Café and Carer’s Support Group (originally held on Tuesday afternoons), offering dementia information and support:

The Memory Cafe is an activities-based group for adults who are being cared for and is open to anyone, not just those who have been diagnosed with Dementia.

The Carers’ Support Group runs alongside the memory Café and is open to anyone who is caring for a relative/friend for whatever reason. The support group will be the chance for carers to meet others who are in a similar position to themselves, to exchange stories and ideas and gain more information on what help is available to them. All of this whilst enjoying a tea or coffee.

Monthly Quiz night in the Old School Community Centre at 7.30 – 9.30pm on the first Thursday of every month (see above)
