research in the local community highlights that elderly people who spend many
daytime hours alone look forward to a specific time in the week where they can enjoy
a social occasion with friends and new people. We are also aware that they
enjoy Shopping trips, Coach Excursions and Museum visits.
Our research also shows that when these events took place previously the
senior citizens felt much better about themselves which increased their self esteem.
The project is carefully located at premises which has good wheel chair accessibility, up to date disabled toilets and operates very close to the town centre and is in walking distances from its services.
The marketing and promotional material highlights the benefits widely on offer and welcomes people from all types of various backgrounds.
