TIME TO TALK

Scottish Field - - NEWS -

A Scot­tish shop­ping cen­tre is try­ing to help peo­ple bat­tling lone­li­ness and iso­la­tion, in spe­cially-cre­ated seats called Chatty Chairs. Intu Brae­head has cre­ated the seat­ing area, which is specif­i­cally de­signed to en­cour­age peo­ple to talk to each other. The Chatty Chairs are in the up­per mall, and the move comes after the Age Scot­land char­ity re­vealed 282,000 older Scots feel lonely. www. intu.co.uk
