Methodist Church has Invites for Young & Old

Methodist Church has Invites for Young & Old

Silver Sunday – Sunday 23rd July at 3pm

For the older members of our community. Particularly if you are elderly, living alone and have no family and/or friends living nearby, this could be for you. You are warmly invited to Afternoon Tea with folk in a similar situation to yourself. The tea will be in the Methodist Church Hall.  If wanted, transport will pick you up from your home, bring you to the tea and return you home afterwards.

Please contact Judith Fletcher 241969 or Andrew Wilks 242511 if you, a neighbour or someone else you know, would like to come or need transport.

About Silver Sunday

The invitation has been issued by the West Bergholt Methodist Church who have said:

There has been much publicity that the proportion of our population that are elderly is increasing.  Also that there is a significant proportion of elderly people who live alone and can be lonely and become isolated.  A charitable trust has set up “Silver Sunday” in trying to raise this issue and try to take steps to address it (www.silversunday.org.uk). We became aware of this and felt we as a Church would like to respond.

As a follow-up to the popular events we have already held this year we are holding another simple afternoon tea on Sunday July 23rd at 3.00pm and inviting folk to attend.

We recognise that it could be quite difficult to reach elderly, lonely isolated people and encourage them to come to such an event. We are contacting as many relevant organisations with contacts in the village as possible to seek support with this and are encouraging them to let us know of anyone they feel could be invited.

While it is likely that many of our target audience will not have access to the web it is possible that we might reach some this way or at least neighbours who may know someone to invite.

Craft materialsCoffee & Craft Mornings

West Bergholt Methodists are holding two of their popular Coffee and Craft mornings for young families this Summer.  They take place on Monday July 31 and Monday August 14, both from 10.30 to 12.00.  They promise fun activities for families for just £2.50 per family.

These will take place in the Methodist Church Hall, Chapel Lane, CO6 3EF.  ALL ARE WELCOME but, sorry, we are unable to accept unaccompanied children.

For more details please contact Andrew Wilks on 242511.
