If you’re feeling lonely or just fancy a cuppa or a chat, then Bundaberg Pensioners League is the place for you.
The newly elected committee is calling for community members to make a connection, and join in the fun with friends, to help combat social isolation.
Bundaberg Pensioners League secretary Amanda Stirrat said the organisation catered to older residents of the region, but it was open to everyone to gather for friendship.
“We’ve just held our first craft and chat session – there may have been much more chatting than there was craft, but that’s what it is about,” Amanda said.
“Craft and chat is held on a Tuesday and people are welcome to bring along any of their own craft and use their own voice to chat.
“There’s a great bunch of people, who come along for friendship and socialisation in a safe place to talk.”
Amanda said along with craft and chat, Bundaberg Pensioners League was open each Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, between 7.30-11.30am, with a hoy and cent sale held every second Friday, and just hoy on the off week.
“Hoy is a great game where you use cards, it’s quite popular and easy enough to learn,” she said.
“But if people don’t want to participate in that, they are more than welcome just to come along for the social side and have a good chat – we are really good at chatting!
“Some people get very lonely, and this gives them a chance to get out of the house and enjoy time with others.”
