This is a great opportunity for the over-60s of Siddington and Preston to make friends in the relaxed, pleasant, warm and comfortable surroundings of the Elizabeth Way Community Room. The club meets every second Tuesday of the month at 2.30pm, with a different speaker providing entertainment with a talk, demonstration or slide show. A wide range of topics has been covered over the years, from nature talks to reminiscences about a childhood in a Barnardos Home, from Caribbean Islands to storytelling, and from treasures in the attic to Life Boats. Members are also kept informed about any advances that may improve their lifestyle.
There is always an ‘everyone’s a winner’ raffle. Nobody goes home without a prize. Refreshments of tea and coffee with biscuits or cake are always provided. There is an annual Christmas party with entertainment and festive treats, as well as a coach trip. There is a modest yearly subscription to cover refreshments, birthday posies and cards. The club also offers free transport to residents in Siddington and Preston who are unable to get to meetings.
