Clubs and Groups
The Funday Monday Activities Group goes out on a Monday and is for anyone to join in with any outing that takes their fancy. This group goes out for lunch and coffee and ice-cream and we go to local places of interest as well as getting some shopping in too! We also have activities in the Society such as quizzes and afternoon teas so hopefully there is something for everyone.
The Lunch Club offers a scrumptious 2 course meal consisting of either a soup and main course or a main and pudding. The food is lovingly prepared on the premises and made from locally sources fresh ingredients. Favourites are mince and tatties to roast joints to tasty pasta dishes as well as yummy chocolate puddings and warming hot soups. Definitely a group for the foodies amongst us!
The Bingo Club allows partially sighted and blind people to play this popular game in a friendly and supportive setting. The amount of noise and laughter that emanates from the clubroom during the session would indicate that those who come to this find it great fun.
The Reminiscence Group lets members have a trip down memory lane as well as finding out more about the past that they did not know. Lots of interesting details are there to be discovered and doing this helps to jog memories even more - stimulating and fun.
The Games Afternoons on a Wednesday are a great opportunity to have some fun and get competitive! We have a range of indoor games including bowling, curling, shuffleboard, velcro darts and bean bag toss.
Judging by the hilarity that comes from the games area we believe this is a very popular activity in the Society!
Armchair Aerobics takes place every Thursday and Friday and this is a favourite with the Members. They put their all into the exercises and they have even designed tee shirts to work out in, they are known as The Ward Road Warriors!
The Craft Group seem to have a lot of fun as well as producing a wide selection of different craft items. At one session there can be clay modelling, beadwork, cardmaking, knitting and drawing. Although they have the occasional sale to raise funds for materials, their main pleasure is in making craft items and chatting and not necessarily in raising money.
Tea and Chat does exactly what it says on the tin. This popular session allow people to come together for a bit of a blether and the occasional singsong if they feel like it, we have live music every 3 weeks.
All of these rely on volunteers to run them so please refer to our pages on Volunteering if you feel like becoming involved. As you can see from our pictures the one thing guaranteed is fun!
