We are shortly to announce the re-opening of our club.
Due to the successful Vaccination roll out we feel confident that we can now accept new member enquiries.
If you know of anyone who is desperate to get out of their house and socialise with members of the community and have something to look forward to each week. Contact us for a chat. Live life to the full and join our friendly welcoming club for older people in Mid Devon.
The Vaccination program will mean that we can re-open earlier than expected. Keep an eye on this website for our opening date!

Listen to the BBC Radio Devon interview with our clubs chairman
"As a really sociable person, I was so hoping the move to Devon last summer to be near my daughter would mean I could meet new friends. Sadly with the pandemic I haven't had the chance to meet people in person yet, but the Young At Heart Club has been a lifeline with the Tuesday telephone ChitChat. I really can't wait to finally enjoy the company of my new friends in person. Thank you for making me feel so welcome"
Club members join the ChitChat sessions each week. They can have a laugh and share stories and memories with each other and enjoy playing a game of YAHBO!( which is a unique form of bingo)with other club members. it is the perfect way to tackle isolation during the pandemic lockdown! Yet another great service provided by the team at the Young at Heart Club.
Club member Ruth from Tiverton says "I really look forward to the ChitChat sessions each week, I love it. It is nice to hear so many familiar voices at the same time....Thank you for making my day"
