As you will be aware, Cuppa and Chat runs every Thursday afternoon at Greenmount Old School and was set up to provide a space for residents to meet and avoid feeling isolated in their homes. Since being set up in March 2021, we have welcomed many residents from Greenmount, Summerseat, Holcombe Brook, Brandlesholme, Tottington and Helmshore. There are between 20 to 30 people each week and often more for special events.
Due to an advert in the last addition of our newsletter ‘Greenmount Voice’ in November, a few extra people joined because of the programme we had on offer. As this newsletter is only 3 or 4 times a year, I think it is a good idea to let you know the programme for the next couple of months. We will be meeting from 1.30 till 3.30pm in February, but back to our usual time of 2pm till 4pm from March onwards.
