Thursdays at the Salvation Army start at 11:30am with an hour of chair-based and standing exercise for stretching, strengthen core muscles and improve balance. Particularly important to feel more stable and prevent from any falls. It’s described as gentle but it doesn’t need to be if you want to take it up a notch. People over 55 from a wide range of ages attend this class.
After the class you can stay for lunch (starting at 12:30pm) if you fancy a warm homemade meal by the Salvation Army’s fabulous cook, Linda. This is a familiar and friendly lunch club. Dawn and Nicky have been running this lunch club for years with the indispensable help of dedicated volunteers who know everyone by their first name. Anyone that fancies a warm homemade meal and a chat is welcomed. You can expect something more elaborate than soup. They have a big room to accommodate everyone. People sit in large tables allowing easy flow of conversations. They also have a charity shop at the back that funds the running of the place.
After lunch you can stay on and watch classical films from all eras on a big screen (starting at 1:30pm), with a cuppa and good company. The film is provided by the Neighbourly Care Community Project.
There is a drop in cafe 10 am – 2:30 pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Entrance to the Salvation Army is through the main entrance, where you will need to ring the bell but someone will quickly let you in. The building is easily accessible for wheelchair users.
Food and donations welcomed!
