Over 60's Social Club

Leigh-on-Sea Town Council run a bi-monthly social club for local residents as a way to help combat social isolation and loneliness for some of our elderly residents. The Social Club is a friendly group which is helped by several local volunteers, we always aim to make people feel welcome, and we run different activities at each session, so you will get the chance to learn something new and try new things! 

The Social Club takes place at 12pm - 1.30pm on the first and third Wednesday of the month and takes place in the Donald Fraser Hall at Leigh Community Centre. The building is fully accessible with ramps at the entrances and disabled toilet.

The club includes lunch as well as an activity at a cost of £5 per person. Places must be booked in advance if you are eating lunch with us so we know how much food to prepare. Please make us aware of any dietary requirements. To book your space please call the office on 01702 716288, or visit our reception. 

Food allergies/intolerances can be catered for and vegetarian/vegan options are available, please just ask when booking.

If you don't want to eat lunch with us or you want to bring your own, you can still come along at a cost of £2, with no advance booking. Hot drinks and biscuits are available to all at every session.

We regretfully are unable to offer transport to the Club or respite care. Carers are welcome to attend. 

  

Reasons to come along... 

  • A chance to socialise and make new friends
  • Learn new skills and stimulate your mind
  • Get out the house. Be active and improve your quality of life.
  • Different activities every session
  • Refreshments included
  • Everyone is welcome!
