Include any ways of contacting your organisation that you’re happy to publish on the Web. If you’re giving someone else’s details, first ensure they’re happy for these details to be published.

Please include an e mail address for the organisation if at all possible. It need not be published, but it is helpful to us as we use e mail for updating purposes.

If you’re the main contact for the group, click on the Primary contact box.

N.b. If there is an out of date contact in place you need to delete this and add a new contact.

  1. Currently all groups are closed due to the COVID pandemic but will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so.

    Aspire has been working throughout 2020 to keep connecting people even with the struggles of Covid 19 by delivering digital tablets and craft and wellbeing bags. Please contact us if we can help.

    Normally we provide friendly, welcoming and relaxed weekly community groups for people 55 and over. Planned program of events includes guest speakers, local authors, storyteller, pottery classes, local history talks and much more! All welcome for a fresh hot drink and a biscuit, and great opportunities for friendship and informal support.
