Staying active socially is good for both our physical and mental health, and plays an important part in ageing well. But post-Covid, many of us have simply got out of the habit.

So why not make 2024 your year for getting out more, meeting up with old friends – and maybe making some new ones, too?

A coffee morning’s a great excuse for a catch up, and we’re currently putting together a fundraising pack to help you organise your own.

In the meantime, Monmouth’s Mary Wakeling and her team of volunteers have coffee mornings planned for March (date to be confirmed), 17 May, 22 June, 26 October and 7 December.
