In the first six months of operation, the Caistor Cares free coffee mornings have been declared a runaway success by many of the town’s elderly residents, who support this weekly social get-together every Monday morning.
Since they began last September, the hour-long informal gatherings have been well attended by an increasing number of ladies — and gentlemen — keen to make new friendships in the town, catch up on all the latest news and of course enjoy the free cups of coffee and tea on offer, as well as a few biscuits and the chance of winning the monthly raffle!
One of the newer recruits, a gentlemen in his seventies, commented: “I was a little apprehensive about coming along initially but I needn’t have worried. I was welcomed by everyone and there are always plenty of interesting folk to talk to. I was surprised by how many gentlemen attend too; I’ve already met some nice chaps and thoroughly look forward to Monday mornings now — it’s one of the highlights of my week.”
The Caistor Cares coffee mornings are held every Monday morning at Drakes Court (next to Southdale flats, near the petrol station) from 10-11am. Everyone over 60 is welcome and more information is available from Angela Clark on 01472 85274.
