Social Clubs and Activities in December

The festive season is almost upon us! To celebrate and ring in the new year, we've got a bumper-packed month of social clubs for our neighbours to enjoy.

Our top priority remains to keep everybody safe, so all of our face-to-face social clubs will continue to run with restricted numbers in line with government guidance. This means you might not obtain a place at every club you wish to attend.

All of our activities are free to join. However, younger neighbours must first complete an induction, and older neighbours need to book in advance. Please call us on 0207 118 0404 if you would like to attend. If you can’t get through to a member of staff, please leave a voice message, and we will get back to you.

There are two different ways to join in the fun:

1. Attend a face-to-face club (marked 👫 in the list below). Please call 0207 118 0404 to book a place or arrange an induction.

2. Take part using a computer, tablet or a smartphone with an internet connection (marked 💻 in the list below). If you’ve got access to the internet at home, you just need to download Zoom to join, which we can support with if you get in touch.

3. Join a virtual club over the phone (marked 📞 in the list below). You can either call Zoom to join the club, or we can call you!
