Social group from Ellesmere Port make radio debut
A social hub for the older generation celebrated Older People’s Day with a feature on BBC Radio Merseyside.
Community interest company Endeavour 2013 provides a variety of activities and entertainment each Tuesday at the Flatt Lane Community Centre, Ellesmere Port, from 10am to 2pm.
It marked this year’s Older People’s Day with a celebration of the achievements older people have brought to community.
The hub featured on Sean Styles’s programme on Radio Merseyside on the day as Sean had visited in the previous week to find out about the unique service offered at Endeavour.
Bryan Caldycott of Chester Accordion Group played a selection of music while town mayor of Ellesmere Port Cllr Bob Crompton joined in for a buffet lunch. In the afternoon clients were treated to a tea tasting demonstration from Whittard of Chelsea.
Local fundraiser Billy Birch also popped in for lunch and Cllr Tony Sherlock came along to chat to the clients. Balloons to decorate the room were kindly donated by Blooming Lovely florists in Whitby.
Endeavour is now offering subsidised transport to clients at a price of £2 for a return journey within the local areas of Ellesmere Port providing a door-to-door service.
This is in addition to the £8 daily charge.
“So for £10, including door-to-door transport, you will have a fun packed day, meeting up with new and old friends, a two-course freshly prepared meal, morning and afternoon, refreshments, activities, talks, demos and entertainment,” said Paula Collins at the hub.
To find out more and book your place ring Paula on 0151 200 1861.
