Friday Friends is a registered charity (No. 1049508) run entirely by volunteers. We provide a weekly day out for the older residents of the parish. As our name suggests, our members meet every Friday at 10.30 am at Shenstone Village Hall. The day starts with morning coffee, followed by a two course cooked lunch, and after-lunch entertainment. We round off the day with tea and cakes/biscuits and conclude the event at around 3.30. These pictures are from our Easter 2106 celebrations.
Most of our members can get to us under there own steam but some need help with transport so we provide a mini-bus service which picks them up from their own home and takes them back at the end of the day. We also provide a qualified care assistant who helps those with mobility issues or failing sight etc.
The after-lunch activities range from live music, to demonstrations, film shows etc. Our members pay a small charge to cover the cost of the food ingredients, petrol for the bus and hire of the hall.
