evening :)
just wondering if anybody could tell me how i find out about local and regular pensioners meetings and activities etc.

my Pap(grampy) died a few months ago and my Nan is a bit lost and lonely. we all visit often but i think she would like to make some new friends and be with people her own age who are more likely to have same interests and so on.
tried looking online but couldn't find anything.where would be the best place to find this sort of information?
thanks

My OH grandad goes to some groups called 'warm centres' which are for over 50's and they get lunch. He really likes it there and misses it on the days its not on :D

I don't know if that's just in their area but they are run by the council - try and look on your council's website :)

When my grandad died I got my gran a part-time job at her local charity shop and she loved it.

Also contacted these who put her in touch with a local luncheon club:-
