Community friendship group in Grantham starts next week

Have your say

A community group ‘for all’ is starting on Tuesday at the Jubilee Life Centre.

The Community Friendship Group (CFG), which aims to be a central meeting hub for anyone in the community, will take place at 9.30am-11.30am on Tuesday, January 13, and run fortnightly at the same time on a Tuesday thereafter.

With the centre’s café Tasty Treats run by local teenagers, drinks and freshly baked cakes will be available, along with a play session for children.

It is the idea of Grantham Additional Needs Fellowship’s principal in charge of schools Ann White and parent Katie Bennington, who said: “We would like to bring members of the community together. There are specific groups out there for mums and toddlers, senior citizens, disability groups. What we wanted to do was to set up an inclusive for all group.

“We have access to so many different and varying resources and wanted to share that within the local community.”

If you are interested in making new friends, while also having a safe place for children to play, pop along to the group meetings.
