What we do
The Good Morning Drop In for over 50s runs on a Wednesday morning from 10am - 12 noon and currently has 20 registered members with 12 attending on a regular basis. Members enjoy the company of one another over a cup of tea or coffee and in the time that the drop in has been operating, a number of good friendships have developed.
Apart from chatting over tea and coffee, the favourite activities of this group are, bingo and raffles with prizes, recreational outings. To date, members have enjoyed shopping trips and theatre trips to the local Palace Theatre. We have been successful in accessing funding from a variety of funding investors with the most recent being from Age Scotland. This funding will pay for a programme of alternative therapies as well as promotional flyers to raise awarenesss of the service across the surrounding communities. We Also operate a saving scheme and members deposit money each week to save for a holiday, Christmas shopping or simply for a rainy day. In the better weather, our members take their activities outside into the lovely community garden, which was officially opened in august 2016 and funded by the Renewabl Energy Fund, Awards For All and the People's Postcode Lottery.
