A social hub for the older generation has celebrated its first anniversary.

Endeavour currently operates on Tuesdays from 10am to 2pm at the Flatt Lane Community Centre in Ellesmere Port.

Director Paula Collins says the social hub, a community interest company, encourages people to get out and mix with others who are like minded preventing social isolation as well as promoting health and wellbeing.

It also encourages people in the older age range to get out from the confines of their own homes and reintegrate with society.

The hub provides a fun packed enjoyable day where clients can meet up with friends old and new, have a two course freshly prepared meal, morning and afternoon refreshments and enjoy activities, talks, demonstrations and entertainment.

Paula said: “We celebrated our first anniversary having successfully negotiated our first full year of running the social hub for the older generation in our community.

“We also featured on Sean Styles Tuesday programme on Radio Merseyside following a visit from him to see our work and talk to volunteers and clients who were extremely complimentary about the service they receive and what good fun they have at Endeavour Social Hub.”

The celebrations included Chester Home Guard Society who talked about and demonstrated what life was like during the Second World War and the local U3A Ellesmere Port music group which entertained with songs from the Second World War era and a sing-along.

The mayor of Ellesmere Port Cllr Bob Crompton joined the hub for a buffet lunch along with Cllr Justin Madders, leader of the Labour Group on Cheshire West and Chester Council and borough councillor for Ellesmere Port Town ward.

Ellesmere Port councillors Nicole Meardon and Paul Donovan (Lab), who both represent Sutton ward, also enjoyed chatting with the clients.

Balloons for the festivities were kindly donated by Blooming Lovely florists in Whitby.

Paula says everyone is made welcome at the hub for £9 per day.

Additionally, there is door to door subsidised transport available for £2 for the return journey.
