Over 55? Why be alone when you can join us for a fun lunch club?

For almost four years, a critical part of Workskills has been our lunch clubs for the Over 55s. Twice a week our catering and community team lay on a hot two-course meal with drinks for people in the Cromer and North Walsham areas. The lunch club is held at our Cromer base every Monday and at North Walsham Community Centre every Wednesday.

As well as the food, camaraderie and conversation, our members lay on entertainment in the form of raffles and bingo. Some guests attend every week whilst others turn up when they can.

The cost of the clubs are £6.00 for the Cromer Club on Mondays and £7.00 for the North Walsham Club on Wednesdays (This covers the rental for the hall). The clubs run from approximately 11.30am until 2pm.

One of the key advantages of our clubs is that for a small fee (£1.50-3.00), we will pick people up from their homes in our minibus (which has a lift for those that need it) and return them home afterwards. With North Norfolk being a rural district and isolation a huge issue, this is a simple but important benefit of the About With Friends’ lunch clubs.

If you want to know more about the lunch clubs or simply book a place on one please call 01263 515230. If you leave a message on our answerphone please leave a number so we can call you back.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and everyone else that supported H on the recent trip – she had an amazing time. I enjoyed look at the Twitter feed to see what you had been up to.

I haven’t seen D for ages and he looks like a new man . The stress has gone from his face – he looks great Well done !!!!

I’ve got my life back

This is the best transition I have had for a student in the whole five years I have taught 6th formers!

About with Friends and you particularly, have done some great work with excellent outcomes for D. I was particularly pleased to hear that you are working on integration with the Youth Group as I felt he would miss out on peer interaction if he didn’t come to college.

We cannot tell you what AWF means to us as a family – a lifeline, a light in the dark. Something that has offered our daughter equality, to have a social life and really support us as a family.

Over the last five years I have had a fortnightly, 2 hour designated gardening slot. I highly value your service and ethos.

A big thank you to yourself and the About with Friends staff for another great trip! J had a fantastic time, going on the Harry Potter Studio Tour, which he had wanted to do for ages and ages.

After 30 years of trying to get P engaged in activities, he is now, under your care, beginning to grow like a great Oak tree.

Thank you for taking K to Milton Keynes on holiday, it made her extremely happy. Selfishly, it gave my wife a much sought after period of respite after 16 years of constant care.
