Home » News » New OPAL Volunteers Sought

The Tattenhall OPAL (Older People Active Lives) Club meets at the Barbour Institute, Tattenhall every Tuesday from 10.00 am until 2.30 pm, bringing together older men and women from the Tattenhall area for coffee, companionship, activities and lunch. Two key volunteers are retiring at the end of October (after 26 years!) so new recruits are urgently required.

Volunteers are asked to assist at one or more event per month, typically for six hours, helping with activities, conversation and serving of meals and refreshments.

For further information phone 01929 771059 and Elaine Dunham will only be too pleased to answer any related questions.

Further Information about OPAL
The club caters for men and women from the Tattenhall area who enjoy the opportunity to get out of their own home and meet old friends and make new acquaintances. Volunteer drivers are available to transport people to the meetings. The club has a wide and varied programme of activities, both in the Barbour Institute and 'out-and-about'. Our outings include an annual trip to Bolesworth Castle, visits to Llandudno, National Trust gardens, local Garden Centres and trips on the canal. Members get to share a hot two-course lunch in the middle of the day as well as mid-morning tea and biscuits. Weekly activities are organized for the members, which include gentle Keep-fit exercise classes, talks from the Local History Society and musical activities. If you, or somebody you know, wishes to find out more please contact Brenda Platt, Organiser
