A NEW social club for the elderly opened in Caversham Park Village yesterday (Thursday).
The launch of club at the Milestone Centre in Northbrook Road follows the success of a similar club in Amersham Road. It will be run by volunteers from the Caversham Older People’s Steering Group on the first and third Thursday of each month from 10.30am to 2.30pm.
The club is funded by Reading Borough Council with support from Age UK Berkshire Active Living.
Councillor Rachel Eden, lead member for adult social care, said: “Older residents north of the river have asked for more social clubs and activities local to them and by working in partnership with the community we’re able to deliver.”
