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 ”

Future Dates

Community Gatherings 

We have a lovely problem – our gatherings are very popular, so we are now having 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.

In November we return to Buttercups Tea Room at Tilton on Tuesday 5th November 2.00-3.15pm. with transport available if booked one week before.  The maximum number for this event is 30.

On Wednesday 23rd October those who can make their own way there are welcome to join us at the Insomnia Cafe in Adam and Eve Street, MH from 10.30-11.45pm and on 13th November we will be meeting at Sweet Peas, Adam and Eve Street, MH 2.30-3.45.

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