A social hub for the older generation is encouraging more to join the throng.

Endeavour was launched at the Flatt Lane Community Centre in Ellesmere Port last year with regular Tuesday sessions to provide support within the community.

Director Paula Collins was so delighted with the success of the group that she added a Friday session at the turn of the year.

Both days run from 10am to 4pm and provide a hot meal, entertainment, activities and also a much needed place to go for a chat.

To mark the development, Michelle Thorburn provided a reiki demonstration and talk, while the Chester Home Guard turned up to talk about their activities, dressed up for the occasion in full wartime regalia as they do when they are when doing re-enactment shows for the public.

The Home Guard also brought along much of their equipment, including period weapons.

To cap off the day, David Rattey from Ellesmere Port Lions Club came along to talk about some of the work the Lions do in the area to support the local community and presented Paula with a welcome cheque for £250 towards activities at the hub.

Endeavour always welcomes and values help and support from businesses and organisation in the area.

The group recently received a donation from The Book People Limited in conjunction with Innospec Special Chemicals Ellesmere Port.

This was presented in the form of a cheque for £156.50 at a Tuesday session by Mairead Dyke, Innospec’s charity co-ordinator.

Paula said: “The donation will be used to fund future events and activities for the clients that attend the social hub.”
