Neil Parish MP for Tiverton and Honiton spent some time playing Curling and speaking with the club members and was impressed with the service the Young at Heart Club provides for older lonely people.
We are introducing club members to the basics of using a Tablet computer and how they can enjoy creating Digital Art. This is an optional activity, members can choose to participate in one of the many other activities if they wish.
Lloyd and Diana the club Co-founders were delighted to meet Rebecca Pow MP at the "Older Peoples Day Fair" in the Brewhouse Theatre Taunton.
The Young at Heart Club had a display stand in a prominent position and met many older people who attended the fair. In excess of 70 leaflets were taken and positive feedback and enquiries were received. It was a fantastic event and superbly organised. Well done to Rebecca Pow and the Brewhouse for a great day!
