The Coalfield Trust Regeneration programme is supporting the Mansfield Irish & Dukeries Association in providing a fortnightly luncheon club for the over 60s.
The association, which has thanked the Trust, says that the lunches give old folk the chance to reminisce.
The events include live music and bingo, plus professional speakers giving advice on various topics including health and benefits.
Anyone in the Mansfield and Dukeries area is welcome to the Association’s functions at Boothy’s, West Hill Drive, Mansfield.
The next luncheon is on Tuesday 31st January at 1pm. Ring Tom or Ann on 01623 422021 to book a meal.
The next social event for both young and old is the Festival of Irish Culture on Friday 10th February at 7pm. Many and varied local acts will be appearing. Admission £2, including Irish stew.
