Conversation With a Cuppa: Michael visits Coffee Club

Every Tuesday afternoon a group of retired Northampton residents meet at Northampton Lawn Tennis Club to socialise at a recently-established Coffee Club and I was delighted to be asked to join them for a chat and a question and answer session.

The Club was set-up by one of my constituents who in their retirement felt it would be a good idea to create a club where older people could meet and socialise.

Establishing social clubs like these are great ideas for combatting isolation and loneliness, and social interaction dramatically improves quality of life.

I spent the afternoon chatting to the many people who attended and it was a pleasure meeting everyone. I commend my constituent for setting up the club.
