Looking for friends? Why not try Mathoura’s group
ARE you aged over 65 and looking for a place where you can go each week and meet up with people around your age?
The Mathoura Friendship Group meets weekly for a cuppa and a chat and would like more people to join them.
Regular activities include Bingo, art and craft, card and board games, ‘brain teasers’ and word games, as well as the occasional outing.
Intereach community support team care coordinator Anna Scott said the most important aspect of the group was the social interaction, friendship and conversations.
“We always welcome new people to the group,” she said.
“You can come along each week, or just turn up when you can; it’s a great way to meet new people and to keep yourself active and engaged.
“There are always activities on offer, and great conversation.”
A Friendship Group has also been meeting in Barham for many years.
“Community transport can be arranged for Barham participants, and we also welcome people to come across from Koondrook,’’ Anna said.
Both groups meet each Wednesday from 10am to 3pm and the cost is $15 per attendance which includes lunch.
Mathoura participants meet at the Mathoura Community Health Centre and Barham participants at the Community Health Centre at the Barham Hospital.
