Keeping active .. Making friends

For many elderly people – especially those who are fit and active – loneliness is the greatest problem. Our social clubs and service centres play an important role in providing a safe place to meet new friends, enjoy a good meal at a very affordable price, and participate in activities such as bingo, bridge, calligraphy, dancing and handcrafts.

Most charge a small monthly membership fee, and are open Monday to Friday. Please consult the table below for full details.
