Over 50s are being invited to a Coffee Morning Event at the Ilfracombe Centre on Tuesday 8th September anytime between 10am to 2pm, in which attendees will be asked what different social groups they would like to see set up.
Miriam Turner, One Ilfracombe Community Connector, said: “We are working with a charity who has lottery funding to help set up new social groups in Ilfracombe for people aged 50 and over. We already have a number of established groups in Ilfracombe, but I have seen a lot of people who are looking for new activities that they would like to be part of.”
The lottery funded project covers the whole of North Devon and is part of an initiative to help tackle social isolation in people aged 50 and over, which is a growing issue.
If you are unable to come along to the coffee morning, but would like to tell us about your idea for a new group, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
