Art attack at club’s painting session
Burnside Autumn Club will enjoy a painting session at their meeting next week.
Charles Clark will attend on Wednesday, February 1 to show members his artisitic skills. The week after, February 8, Craig Allardice will hold a keep fit session.
Those attending today’s meet will enjoy a talk from Calderwood head teacher Lisa Quinn.
The club is currently on the lookout for more members. They meet every Wednesday from October to March in Burnside Church hall from 2pm.
Set up 30 years ago by Burnside Community Council, the Autumn Club aims to tackle loneliness and isolation in the retired community, especially during the winter.
Organised by a committee, meetings include talks from guest speakers and musical and comic entertainment. Numbers attending remain strong but they are decreasing and the committee are getting older.
Malcolm Piggot, who helps run the club, said: “There is a growing need to provide accessible and regular events in October to March.”
