We know that there is a need for more interaction between young people and older people in the area to bridge this age gap and develop intergenerational activities.

This weekly session will help young and old people to appreciate each other in a society where young people have increasingly been associated with anti-social behaviour and no respect for the older generation.

We also want to support older people’s initiatives to help themselves get out of isolation from their homes, the loneliness of having no one to interact with, express themselves and do anything physically and mentally entertaining.

We have initiated a health and well-being programme with older people aged 60 plus. It has been very popular and to date, the number of older people coming to the project has reached 30 on average per week.

Activities like Bowling which goes down as a favourite will be more frequent than before !!

The project consists of a weekly gathering (Thursdays – Midday) at Marner Centre that lasts for three hours each.
They do the following:

informal chats

healthy lunch

light stretching exercises

sitting exercises

short distance walking

singing and dancing

watching film documentaries

short mat bowling

board games

If you know someone that wants to join the club drop us an email on info@bbbco.co.uk or alternatively come down to Marner Centre on Thursday @ Midday. Helping hands from Young Volunteers is also welcomed !

With a few trips in the summer being a success including the fruit picking we now plan more day's out for the Club and the Residents of Coventry Cross
