Lunch and Activities & Reminisce Club (Wallsend)
We meet on a Tuesday at Trinity Methodist Church hall, Station Road, Wallsend NE28 8SA and we are there from 11-2.30. Members come along any time between 11 and 12 for a cup of tea and informal chat, or a maybe game of dominoes or scrabble.
At 12 we have a 2 course home cooked lunch. Most people then stay for our afternoon activities which include entertainers, quizzes, armchair exercises and much more! We finish with an optional game of bingo most weeks and club finishes at 2.30.
