A Blackhall Colliery care home has launched a new social club to create community links and to help tackle loneliness.

The club, the ‘Silver Social’, will meet once a month at Field View care home in Hesleden Road and will feature a varied programme of activities and entertainment.

People can sign up to be notified by post, telephone or email with details of the next club gathering.

The first club meeting, which is free to attend, will be on Wednesday, March 23, at 10.30am and will feature an Easter themed coffee morning followed by a soup and stottie social.

As well as inviting people from the local community to attend, the team is also extending an invitation to community groups, organisations and charities who would like to get involved with the monthly club.
