Whitemoss Age-Friendly Club - Charlestown

This popular club provides a warm welcome on Fridays for local older people. The Whitemoss Club has, for decades, provided youth club facilities for young people living in Higher Blackley and Charlestown but began running Age Friendly Sessions for people 50+ over 3 years ago. There are a range of activities available on Fridays and the club has attracted a great mix of men and women. The club has an IT suit with relaxed learning sessions on offer throughout the year, table tennis and pool is on offer each week and there's a great sports hall where members can enjoy a game of badminton - all the things we used to enjoy in the days when we went to the local Youth Club. There's plenty of relaxed seating too if you'd just prefer to relax and natter.

If you work with older people living in this area or know someone who might be interested in joining the group contact John Biggs on 0161 278 1240.  John is also interested to hear from anyone who might be interested in offering age friendly sessions which might encourage new members to attend.  If you have an idea and want to know more about volunteering at Whitemoss please contact the club.
