The Wellbeing Café in is open to all, every Thursday.

It is between 1pm and 3pm from St Luke’s Church and for only £2 you can have a pot of tea, bowl of soup and a cake (or plenty of cakes!)

The group has around 25 to 30 people going each week, but they have room for more and want to make people more aware that it is there.

It was founded by Victoria Amella and Lizzie Turner, with Claire Coxon joining them to sort out social media and marketing.

The café is dementia friendly.

Victoria Amella said:

The café has been up and running for over two years now and has received great support.

It’s a place for anyone and everyone with a lovely friendly mix of people.

But we have a big room, lots of support and the scope to increase the numbers – we would like to have around 50 come along.

We would encourage people to just come along or if you know someone that may like the group, encourage them to come along or bring them along yourself.

My husband, Alan, had an accident 2-years ago and was left with a brain injury.

The café gives me a 2-hour break with time to switch-off and time to do some other things.

It’s been a life-line for me and Alan has always felt very comfortable and accepted.

If I was to leave him elsewhere, or on his own, I would always be clock-watching and worried about him.

 

Joyce said:

The group has become a lifeline for us, even after moving out of the area, we still come back to the Café each week.
