Run by Brendoncare Clubs and their fantastic team of volunteers, the Get Together Southbourne Club will be one of Brendoncare’s 90+ clubs across Hampshire and Dorset, and will meet every Thursday, 1.30pm to 3.30pm, at the Immanuel Church, Main Hall, Southbourne. The club was formerly known as the Haviland Springers Club.

Each week, members will enjoy a varied programme of activities, including quizzes, craft activities, guest speakers, entertainers and games such as skittles, horse racing and bingo.

Samantha Agnew, Brendoncare’s Head of Clubs, said, “We are really looking forward to launching the new Get Together Southbourne Club. It’s something new and exciting to offer the Southbourne community. We will be there to welcome new and existing Brendoncare Club members.”

Brendoncare Clubs exists as a charity to champion positive, healthy ageing.  Brendoncare believes in a society where every older person feels valued and included in their community and where no one feels alone.  The clubs provide a friendly, fun, relaxed and supportive environment where older people can meet other club members, make friends and develop strong peer support networks.  These networks are crucial when problems more prevalent to older age occur, such as the poor health or the loss of a partner or close friend.
