Bridgnorth’s Monday get-togethers

Bridgnorth’s Monday get-togethers

What’s What! editor Sally Themans recently met one of the volunteers who helps out at the Bridgnorth Monday Club, which is held in the bungalow at the back of Innage Lane car park.

The club provides a place for elderly people to have a chat, enjoy a hot meal, and participate in a range of activities and exercises – and provides a lifeline for those who find it difficult to get out of the house alone.

“Each week there’s a different activity such as having a manicure or a speaker, or we talk about what people’s past lives,” explained volunteer Julia Davies. “We’re always short of volunteers so if anyone would like to give a few hours on a Monday, even if it’s just once a month, they’d be very welcome… just turn up!”

Transport can be provided if required. If you are interested in helping out or know someone who might enjoy attending, call Pat Thomas on 01952 596765. The club meets every week except in August from 9.30am until 2pm.
