Loneliness is rife amongst older people. There's even a government minister for loneliness now. (One joker said there should be two of them so they don't get lonely ...)
We've got a wonderful opportunity to invite local older people to a lovely tea party with live music, plenty of tea and cake - and opportunities for ongoing friendship.
It's on Saturday 10th February, from 2-4pm at Shirley Parish Hall. Is there someone you could invite a long - a near neighbour? Someone you see at the shops? Someone you see walking the streets?
Tickets need to be booked - call 023 8021 6016 (on the day only: 07543 945770). Suggested donation £2.50 per person (pay on the door). Leaflets are available from St James' by the Park.
Donations for transport are also welcomed!
