Chinwag Café

Chinwag café is a social get-together of older adults who enjoy a ‘cuppa’ and a good old chinwag in the company of like-minded people.

Chinwag helps you to connect with others, which can reduce feelings of loneliness or social isolation.


Social isolation can negatively impact your health but keeping connected can help to improve your feelings of wellness.


So give Chinwag a go……. You might even enjoy the connections, conversations, and companionship. And you are bound to enjoy the cake.


All Welcome!
