Afternoon Club - Chester

New Programme of Events and Activities for the Afternoon Club

In December the Afternoon Club went to Chester for a day trip and enjoyed Christmas dinner, marking the end of an exciting year for the group.  For this years activities see the full story.

Afternoon Club

The Afternoon club is a social group for people aged 55 and over.  It is an opportunity to meet new people and join in a wide variety of events, activities and day trips out.  The group is organised by the over 55 age group for this age group.


The Group was formed over 5 years ago and is mainly targeted at people who live in the Northern Moor and Northenden areas of Wythenshawe.  Although anyone from across Wythenshawe can come along to the group and will receive a warm welcome.   The group grew from a course on Catholic Social Teaching and its key aim is to address social isolation of the over 55 age group.  It alternates its bi-monthly events between St Aidan's Centre, Northern Moor and St Hilda's Hall, Northenden

New Members Welcome

Membership is £5 for every 4 - 5 month programme of activities.  Yes for just £5 to partake in all or as many activities as you like!  Or why not just come along to one of the events?  If you do know anyone who would benefit from the group, please encourage them to come along.  Contact Gerry Flanagan 0161 945 5313 for more information.
