In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.

The Friendship Club is a friendly meeting place for senior citizens. It is open to anyone, with or without a Church connection, whether living in the district or farther afield. Members can attend every week or just once in a while.

Scrabble, dominoes and card games are favourites at the club – followed by a cup of tea and some delicious home baking. Occasionally there’s music and entertainment. During all of these a lot of chatting goes on – seen as the most important part of the meeting! At Christmas there is usually a party lunch.

The main aim of the Friendship Club is to provide a relaxed, friendly and welcoming meeting place for senior citizens. At present there are sixteen members. There is always a smiling face waiting to welcome others.

We meet on the ground floor of Annan House.
