Age UK Reading: Pop-In - Covid 19 response

COVID-19 RESPONSE:

On hold.  All social clubs, coffee mornings and our planned men's group are on hold until further notice. We must prioritise the safety of our staff, volunteers, and particularly clients through this period.

Last updated: 06/04/2020

The Pop-In is held every Thursday. A member of Age UK Reading will be available each week to answer any queries and give information. Tea, coffee and biscuits are available for a small charge. 

A monthly raffle, speakers, occasional outings and other entertainment are arranged. 

No need to book for the weekly Thursday Pop-in, just turn up! 

Notice of future outings are given to pop-in attendees. When we invite you to book for these, we have to make a charge to help cover costs, but many trips are subsidised.
