The Friendship Group meets every second week on a Thursday afternoon. At present there are over 40 people attending. It is a group for senior ladies and gentlemen and there is a feeling of friendship and caring within the group. There are a variety of speakers and entertainers with something to interest everyone. Before the group starts at 2.00pm, i.e. from 1.25pm until 1.50pm, there is a very gentle seated exercise class to music, called ‘Movin’ Aboot,’ for those who wish to attend. It is a fun time and the simple exercises are not beyond the less able.

Carpet-bowlers are a keen and friendly group at St. Columba’s Church. Our Church Bowling Club meets every Monday evening, in the Church, between 6.30pm and 8.00pm for indoor bowls. There are 20 of us, with a regular turnout of about 15 people. We use 2 carpets regularly and 3 carpets if there are enough people. Anyone is welcome to just come along and join us, whether they have played before or not. We welcome everyone.
Beginners will be given a helping hand and there is a supply of bowls available if you don’t have your own. Skill is optional as the bowls sometimes have a mind of their own! The atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly and provides an opportunity to meet other people and make friends in informal surroundings.
Like to give it a try? We’d love to see you. Come and join in. Or contact us.
