. . . your local charity helping to support the elderly in their own homes

Older people in the area regularly meet socially on alternative Wednesdays and occasional Thursdays

at Chavecroft Sheltered Housing in Tadworth.

On arrival, which is usually about 10 am, members have a choice of coffee or tea and biscuits. This is followed by a 2 course lunch at 12.30. The meeting closes at 2.30 pm with afternoon tea. A small charge  is made for the above.

Most members are brought to the club by our Age Concern minibus although a few live nearby and walk to the meeting.

We have the use of a large comfortable lounge and kitchen. 

Currently there are 20 members and 6 volunteers including Sally, our cook. The club is run by Gillian Lownsbrough.

Special occasions are celebrated such as Christmas, Easter, Jubilees and 'noughtie' birthdays.

Club activities

These include a raffle and bingo. A knitting club is being set up, and musical entertainment is arranged several times a year.

Outings are arranged to local venues... Lunch at Heathside Hotel Burgh Heath is very popular, as is our annual visit to Lower Morden Garden Centre for Christmas shopping and roast turkey lunch.

 

 

 We also run a second lunch club at Chavecroft called Pepperpot. This meets 4 times a year and is aimed specificaly at our elderly clients who find it really difficult to get out and about. As such this club is by invitaton only. If you, or a famly member feel that you could benefit from this then please contact the office for more details.
