Members of the Chinwag Club are delighted to be able to carry on with their activities thanks to a grant of £1500 from WDH.
The Club, for people over 50, meets every Monday afternoon at Balne Lane Community Centre. The Club provides an opportunity for older people to make friends and keep active. The group play bingo, cards and do chair based exercises. They often organise guest speakers and people to teach a variety of crafts and activities.
Violet Chaltone, one member of the Club said: "It can feel really lonely when you live on your own. I enjoy coming to the Club for company. This is my regular activity to look forward every week."
Chris Croxall, Tenant Involvement Officer at WDH said: "The area needs more organisations like Chinwag Club. Some of the members are disabled or on low income and the Club gives them a chance to socialise. By coming together regularly it improves the quality of life and avoids isolation. "
The grant will help them to pay towards the annual rent and the cost of running the Club.
The club always welcomes new members. If you would like to join or know someone who would be interested, please contact Balne Lane Community Centre on 01924 373558.
Applications for WDH Community Grant Scheme will be open again on 7 August 2017. For more information please visit http://www.wdh.co.uk/OurCommunities.
