Our Communities Award 2019: Community Involvement Award – WINNER ANNOUNCED!

WINNER: Brew & Chat Group

The Brew and Chat group has now been running since October 2017 it is a group
where anyone in the community can attend this excellent social activity.

When attending the sessions there is a small entrance fee that helps to cover the costs of venue hire and refreshments and helps to sustain the group. Those attending are
only to happy to pay the fee as they then get to enjoy the opportunity to take part in
Kurling, crafts, reading or just having a chat with others.

The group has definitely become more popular and mainly through word of mouth attendances have risen that now averages around 55 per session.

The Brew and Chat group is a social activity that helps to tackle isolation and
loneliness, with new people coming to every session enjoying the activities and
making new friends.

Although open to anyone it is more the older generation that attend, but when at the sessions there is a real buzz amongst those there. The success of this group is solely down to the fantastic volunteers who put in their effort and commitment to make the Brew & Chat group such a wonderful and essential part of the community.
