The Coffee Group meets every Thursday, 10 – 12noon.
The group is open to anyone over 55, and is a lively group that are very active members of the community centre. They have lots to say on a majority of subjects and they love to LAUGH. They do of course, drink coffee.
What they have to say about themselves: From our funds, we often have trips out to local places of interest or theatre trips, or sometimes we go out for lunch. In the past we’ve had demonstrations such as spinning, card making, book binding, jewellery and dolls house making and lots of others interesting crafts. We’ve also had thought provoking speakers on a huge range of topics. Most of us also attend the Monday Lunch Club. Sometimes, we just drink coffee and have a general chat. Barton Road is the heart of our community.
We have a quarterly time table of interesting activities – we try to cater for everyone’s interests.
Barton Road Centre’s new garden, created in 2018. We had a very successful first season of growing, thanks to the Coffee Group and Chris Henig who helped us to get it started. Since then, we have successfully grown onions, potatoes, carrots and an array of beautiful flowers.
If gardening is your thing and you want to help out, come along on a Thursday morning. You’ll be made very welcome.
