Found 6th Jan 2011
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

Local newspapers and local radio,local council offices and sports centres

Whatever you do, don't let her join HUKD or she'll probably get nudez from desperate members by PM! X)

lol @ guv X)

your local age concern will have a list of all clubs,luncheon clubs in your area,also the salvation army run weekly luncheon clubs n social evenings playin bingo,cards etc n also organise lovely day trips. i work for social services so if any help required? dont hesitate to message me.

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

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:-

No problem.

Grandma's are lovely.

check with her local neighbourhood bobby because there are often little oap groups kicking about which they may know about.
