EATING TOGETHER TO BUILD COMMUNITY
We would love these social events to be led by the volunteers, so if you can help coordinate them or help out, just once a month please get in touch!
Lots of you have offered to help, we have our caterer lined up, and offers of talks. We are also looking for people willing to entertain: lead some singing, tell a story etc. which could be a one-off or more regularly.
From autumn 2017 we will be hosting a monthly community meal and social at The Barn on Westdene Green for ALL AGES. It’s likely that these events will be held on a weekday lunchtime and a number of community partners will help us.
The events will include presentations about keeping safe and other topics of interest. Singing will be encouraged, led by local volunteers.
Volunteers will be DBS-checked and receive training, paid for by FoWDG.
Did you know that Withdean Ward contains some of the highest levels of lone pensioner households in Brighton & Hove?
We would like to address issues of loneliness and isolation amongst older people in our community by creating opportunities for them to feel more a part of it.
Please get in touch with us if you are interested in attending or want to help make these events happen
Thank you to the Sussex Community Foundation for helping make this possible.
