Community Activities

Our Community Activities are Re-opening! In line with Government advice, we are re-opening most of our Community Activities. We have already re-opened our Men in Sheds venues in Moreton, Bourton and Northleach and re-started most of our Lunch Clubs. Please click on the links below for further information. We will be updating this page regularly with news of when our other activities will start up again but please do get in touch if you have any questions. All of Cotswold Friends’ Community Activities have been risk-assessed to ensure they are COVID secure.

Volunteers are still Telephone Befriending people who normally attend Community Activities to keep in touch and shopping and medication deliveries are still being arranged as needed. Our Activities Newsletter is being delivered to over 1,000 clients and to all of our volunteers and is full of ideas and activities for keeping active from home. Click here to take a look. We are also continuing the Book Lending and Jigsaw Lending Clubs, which are proving very popular. Click through to find out more about the Jigsaw Club and the Book Club. We look forward to seeing you all soon!

Getting together with friends and neighbours is a vital part of happy, healthy communities. At Cotswold Friends we support lots of local groups including Lunch Clubs, Knit and Natter, Men-in-Sheds, Community Singing, Walking Football, Walking Netball and Gentle Walking.

NEW We are starting a new Community Group in Bourton on the Water on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month. If you would like to get together with others for a chat and a cuppa, or to join in with a programme of social activities, please do come along. If you are a carer, we can support the person you care for to attend the group while you take a break – or you can come along together. The group will run from 10.30am until 2.30pm and will be held at The Lounge, Market Close, GL54 2HE. All day with lunch £4.50, am or pm with refreshments £1.00. If you would like to come along, please call Bridget on Tel: 01608 652019.
