Time Out

Time Out meets every 2nd Thursday of the Month : 2.30pm to 4.00pm. Forthcoming meetings: December 13th, and in 2019...January 10th, February 14th, March 14th, April 11th and May 9th.

Timeout is an opportunity for elderly citizens in our community to meet together and enjoy an afternoon of fun, entertainment and home-made cake! 

We don’t have a lower or upper age limit.  Some of our guests are housebound and we aim to provide transport for them each meeting.  We also have guests who rely on wheelchairs and we have a team of wheelchair pushers to make sure they arrive on time. Of course we have guests who arrive on foot and some in a taxi.

Our programme is varied but usually beginning with Happy Birthday wishes followed by a quiz, and then poems and readings usually full of fun and laughter. 

Tea and home-made cakes is an important time for getting to know each other, catching up with news and having a real good natter. And after refreshments then we have our main entertainment . And our guests love live entertainment! One of our favourites is having the children from St Oswald’s Primary School to sing for us and they usually come twice a year and also to our Christmas Party. We have had groups playing saxophones; guitars playing Hank Marvin hits; and keyboard players as well as singers with songs from the shows, with some 1950s' hits as well as Al Johnson songs.

 

You will realise Timeout needs a large team of volunteers to ensure the afternoon goes well and as co-ordinator I can never thank them enough.  We are always on the look out for helpers so if you can spare a few hours once a month please get in touch.  We need wheelchair pushers, car drivers, cake makers, general helpers and folk who are just happy chatting and making our guests feel welcome.
