New Horizons, the club for older people in the area, is going from strength to strength.

Here’s what they had to say: “In the six months since our happy band reformed, our membership has increased from 14 to 29 which is nearly full capacity. One member, Jean Woodhouse said, “We have a happy time each Thursday with lovely company.  And we always have a hearty home-cooked lunch.”   “I enjoy the Art Club” said Irene Hannatt and Hilda Potter wishes the day went on longer!

Aside from doing art, others play scrabble or dominos.  Some just enjoy a good chat.  Many appreciate the volunteers who go out and do a bit of shopping if they need something or just fancy a treat.”

The group has a couple of special dates to look forward to:

” ** We will be holding a Coffee Morning on April 14th.  Please come along and enjoy some refreshments….and perhaps more importantly, a friendly chat.  The members especially enjoy the cake, jam and chutney stall as well – always delicious treats to tempt them!  We would be happy to see you there, too.

** On May 3rd, we will be decamping to The Hut at Felixstowe for a day by the seaside complete with a fish and chips lunch.  The venue has an excellent position right on the promenade and we have usually been blessed with good weather.  There will be plenty of volunteers on hand to make sure everyone gets a turn along the prom (there are plenty of wheelchairs available if required).”

New Horizons meets weekly on Thursdays from 10am – 2pm at St. Mary’s Church Hall, 11 Market Hill, Woodbridge, IP12 4LP.

The cost for the day is £8.00 with an additional fee if you require transport.  People over the age of 55 are invited to come along and join.
