Group Befriending

What is the Group Befriending Scheme?

The Group Befriending scheme offers the opportunity to meet with others in warm and friendly environments. There are various weekly events running in the region where you can just turn up and enjoy both friendly conversation and delicious refreshments which are always provided free of charge. Weekly events that are currently running are:

KINGS CLIFFE - Monday Afternoons

We practice all sorts of crafting activities and make some beautiful decorative items in our crafting afternoons at Kings Cliffe Active (PE8 6YH). If you enjoy any sort of crafting activity, or if you would prefer to just sit and enjoy the company of others, please come and join us on Monday afternoons, between 1.30pm – 3pm.

CORBY - Thursday Mornings

Please come and join us for a chat with delicious refreshments at our VA Coffee mornings at The Good Bean Café, Priors Hall (NN17 5EB). We meet every Thursday morning, between 10am – 11.30am and we would be delighted if you could join us!

…COMING SOON to Corby & Oundle….

From 2nd May we will be joining forces with Waitrose to provide a Community Café at their Oundle branch.  Refreshments will be available every Thursday afternoon between 1pm – 3pm in the Waitrose Café.

Also beginning in May, we will be working with Spring and NNC to offer some Accessibility Walks. Similar to Wellbeing Walks, these will be of a very gentle nature, we will go at a pace which suits everyone and the walks will be fairly short in distance. These are aimed at helping people with mobility issues to be able to get out for some fresh air and good company. Each walk will end with refreshments

If you are over 65 years of age and would welcome an opportunity to meet new people, then please come along and join us.
