SCLT Public Presentation Team Visit Evercreech Friendship Club
Tuesday 23rd May 2017 has seen SCLT enrichment presenter Ash Jones, accepting an invitation to join the monthly meeting of the Evercreech Friendship Club, who hold their regular meetings at the Village Hall of the North East Somerset town, to enjoy presentations from informative and interesting speakers on a wide range of subjects, as well as arranging outings to interesting locations and events, as well as enjoying light refreshments and catching up on local news.
The Friendship Club is at the very heart of the senior community for the elderly residents of the remote village, as the cameraderie and lively debate is one of the very few occasions in the month, where everyone comes togther to catch up on local affairs and discuss recent happenings in the neighbourhood.
At the conclusion of his visit, Ash commented, “My visit to Evercreech has been a really enjoyable experience. I take a lot of personal pleasure from delivering the increasing number of enrichment presentations, which we have begun offering alongside our more traditional senior safety presentations.
Many senior groups were increasingly asking if we could come back and deliver other presentations after we had visited with our safety talks, so we sat down as a team and created a growing portfolio of presentations on a vast variety of interesting and entertaining themes.
It has become a huge sucess and we have a packed diary for the next 12-months. It works very well for our safety objectives as well, as every enrichment presentation also includes a brief element of senior safety and every audience member walks away with a copy of our Senior Siren magazine"
Every member of the audience received a personal copy of the award-winning Senior Siren magazine – the quarterly publication of the Senior Citizen Liaison Team, which offers crime prevention advice and a host of other lifestyle information for seniors and those who support elder family members.
