Divine Days’ Westhead Connections is a friendly social group designed especially for you.

We look forward to welcoming you to join us at regular social afternoons at the Village Hall, with other local older people who come to enjoy a few happy hours out and about in a relaxed atmosphere sharing light refreshments and friendly company with others.

Come for a cuppa and a good old chat, or perhaps enjoy reviving past hobbies and interests with us.
Enjoy using the wide range of table top activities waiting for you, in comfortable surroundings. There are dominoes, draughts, try a game of boccia ( a bit like indoor bowls), chess, mikado, playing cards, games, puzzles, adult colouring books, clay modelling, painting, knitting, jigsaws, storytelling and reminiscence books, local history books, maps and artefacts from the 1930’s to present day, with nice music and much more!

Experienced friendly qualified staff look forward to meeting you.

Come and stay awhile. A warm welcome awaits you.
