Luncheon Club for the Elderly at The Globe


Close until further notice.

Last updated 23/04/2020

The Globe is an open and welcoming group for older people in Reading, with a special focus on the African and Carribean community.

The lunch is always freshly ccoked using traditional recipes with special attention to the nutritious needs of older adults.

The group provides seated exercise, activities, speakers and has a lively and friendly atmosphere.

'My mobile, my friend' runs once a month, and offers people a chance to learn about mobile phones and how to keep in touch with family and friends abroad.

Every week there is also a story-telling session where the attendees can share and listen to one another.
