Our outings programme was kickstarted with an afternoon trip to Bosham Harbour. Terry our driver took the scenic route and everyone enjoyed the quayside walks and views, as well as a cafe stop. See our outings page for a copy of our summer programme.
It was fantastic to see so many at our afternoon tea. Many of us haven’t seen each other for over a year so it was really great to catch up. We had delicious home made cakes, scones and plenty of chat in the lovely bright room at Winton House.
Calling everyone that is a bit nervous about venturing out and about again. Join us at the Winton House Centre for plenty of conversation and afternoon tea. Friday 6th August, 3pm. This is a free event. Call Sheridan to book a place on 07852 172998.
I’m so thrilled that we are restarting various services again after a long break. After delivering weekly meals for the past 6 months our lunch club is restarting this week at the Community Centre.

The more people that have a greater understanding of how it is to live with dementia, the more they can make Petersfield a dementia friendly place to be. We are so thrilled that 17 people from Age Concern Petersfield and others from the town came along to our dementia information sessions earlier this month. Thanks go to Ruth (one of our trustees and a dementia champion) that ran these for us.
A big thank you to our IT coaches, minibus drivers, lunch club helpers, and trustees who are the unpaid workforce of our charity. Without them we could not run anything. We held an afternoon tea party in their honour and enjoyed home made cakes and a really warm friendly atmosphere.
Thank you to all of the walkers who turned up to support Age Concern Petersfield at this annual event put on by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association. This event raises funds for local charities and we were thrilled to take part this year. After a sunny walk through Petersfield with nearly 400 others, we were treated to a curry.
Wow wow wow. We cannot thank the organisers enough for developing their idea into a fully blown exhibition of arts and crafts for the over 60s. It was just amazing to see the talent on show and it was lovingly put together with so much heart. The amazing team ran the exhibition over the May bank holiday weekend and had hundreds of visitors and raised £600 for Age Concern Petersfield. Thank you!
We're holding a coffee morning on Saturday 16th Feb, 10-12noon. If you'd like to get out and about more, or need some help at home, then come and have a chat over a cuppa and cake to find out about our activities and services, and pick up our outings programme. All welcome. See you at the Winton House Centre, 18 High Street, Petersfield.
We were lucky indeed to have Father Christmas visit us on two separate occasions at our Xmas lunch club, and our Xmas party. Thank you to the very kind members of the public that thoughtfully filled shoeboxes for Father Christmas to hand out. Our Xmas party had a fantastic turn out filling the hall at the Community Centre. Thanks to Herne Junior School Choir and the George for providing us with the entertainment.
