Community Gatherings

VASL IMAGE GROUP CONVERSATIONWe meet up once a month, usually for coffee in a venue which is accessible.  The purpose of these gatherings is to enable people to meet others in the project in a safe environment, and to extend their local social network.

Clients often come with their volunteer the first time, but soon feel happy to come on their own knowing that they will be welcomed.  We can provide transport and we pay for a hot drink for everyone.

“Thank you all for another wonderful gathering.  Made some more friends and really enjoyed the lovely venue along with the tea and cakes ”

IMG_6172We have enjoyed visits from the Harborough Movie Makers, the Harborough Museum, Kibworth Ladies choir and had a meeting with Harborough Oadby and Wigston MP Neil O’Brien.

Future Dates

Community Gatherings 

We have a lovely problem – our gatherings are very popular, so for three months from May 2019 we are going to have two gatherings a month, one with transport provided and one that encourages people to travel independently.  You can only attend one gathering in a month and the number who can attend the one with transport will be limited.

Wednesday 7th May 2.30-3.45 at The Roebuck, Rockingham Road MH, if you would like transport from home please ring before 9.30am on 29th April.


Thursday 23rd May 10.30-11.45am at Enigma, Coventry Road, MH, please let us know that you are coming by midday 20th May so we can reserve space at Enigma.  We will not be providing transport or paying travel expenses for this event.

In June the dates will be Thursday 6th June (pm) with transport or Wednesday 19th June (am) venues to be confirmed.

The gatherings are for members of the project, they are not open to the public.
