Mansfield leisure centre introducing coffee mornings to help combat winter loneliness

Mansfield’s River Maun Recreation Centre is now holding weekly coffee mornings in a bid to ease loneliness during the cold winter months.

The leisure centre, on Barringer Road, is introducing the sessions every Wednesday, from 10am-nooon, in the hope of helping residents to socialise, particularly after the isolation many have faced during the coronavirus pandemic.

Entry to the coffee morning is free each week and drinks can be purchased at just £1 each.

Carolyn Hallam, health and wellbeing manager for Serco, which manages the leisure facilities on behalf of Mansfield Council, says they hope to ease loneliness for Mansfield residents.
