Tea, cake and entertainment will be on offer for older people next month at a special event bring older people in the borough together.
Called ‘Just Good Friends’, it is a fun – and free – event aiming to give people an enjoyable day out and help people meet up with old friends and make new ones.
It is taking place in the Windsor Suite at King Georges Hall on Tuesday, November 25, between 11am and 2pm.
The event will give the opportunity for a tea and a chat, some great music and dancing with the Recycled Wrens and fun games, with everyone taking part given the opportunity to win at the free raffle.
There will be a selection of delicious local cakes, traditional drinks and freshly made sandwiches and snacks.
The event is being held as part of Blackburn with Darwen Council’s ‘Your Call’ campaign, part of which is a drive to boost community spirit and wellbeing across the borough.
Cllr Kate Hollern, leader of Blackburn with Darwen Council, said
It is hugely important that we try to help older people have fulfilling lives and help them to meet other people.
A big part of the Your Call campaign is building stronger communities and closer ties. We don’t want anyone to feel lonely or alone and we hope that this event will help a lot of older people make new friends and start a fun new chapter in their lives.
