Meet Me at 25 Prospect Street is a space for you to enjoy life to the full and engage in a range of exciting activities. 

It’s somewhere you can meet up with friends, catch up with old ones or make new ones, and have fun together. 

The friendship group is for anyone aged 50 and above looking for something new and a place to socialise. It's also a welcoming space for carers to come with people they care for, enjoy a change of scene and try some new activities together. 

There’ll always be a friendly face ready to welcome you at the door and our staff, session facilitators and volunteers will be on hand to ensure you have a great day. 

There'll be a choice of activities to engage in, including a games table, arts and crafts activities, reading resources, and plenty of opportunity to chat, relax and get to know new people. So there'll be something for everyone. 


We welcome your ideas and are open to suggestions for activities. Expect themed days linked to cultural events, chances to be creative, have a laugh and a good old chin wag!

Meet Me at 25 Prospect Street


So far we've had group discussions, played word games, participated in TimeSlips watched short films, had a go at visualisation tasks, got creative in craft activities, watched the War Horse theatre production, had live music, celebrated Burns Night, incorporated some mindfulness activities and tested our knowledge in a range of quizzes.

We always begin our morning with a hot drink in the chatty café where there'll be prompts to get a conversation rolling, or you can decide on your own topics to discuss with the group. 



The cost for the day is £10 per person, or £5 for carers if bringing someone they care for.

Our kitchen will be open between 12:00 and 13:00 for light lunches. £3.50 for lunch, dessert and tea or coffee. If you'd rather, you're welcome to bring your own lunch. 


We began our Meet Me Wednesday Club on a trial basis and had separate morning and afternoon sessions for participants to choose between. During this period we had a weekly Wednesday warm up with resident fitness instructor Jane. This involved a range of gentle exercises focused on stretching, toning and strengthening. Jane is friendly, motivating and committed to helping people achieve their fitness goals, working in a safe and accessible way. 

Jane will be back on a regular basis to offer sessions during our next phase of Meet Me at 25 Prospect Street. 


We have had two wonderful Artist's in residence working.


Our was Annette Waterfield who worked in the afternoons for four weeks in October and November. Annette's sessions took inspiration from different cultural themes, Artists and events. Annette brought lots of creativity to each session, filling participants with ideas and helped them develop skills in a range of art forms. 


Sessions covered drawing and watercolour taking inspiration from the work of Georgia O'Keffee.

The festival of Diwali and creating beautiful decorative lanterns to mark and celebrate the festival of Lights.

Print making, and exploring African patterns. Plus, looking at the work of Vincent Van Gough and his famous art work Starry Night, using the art medium of acrylic paint to produce an image.  Annette will be back in the coming weeks to run other fun participatory sessions. 

art workshops

Jane Stockley was our second Artist in residence and delivered a series of afternoon print making workshops. 

This covered learning the art of screen printing. Once participants had experimented with making different stencils, forming print lines, patterns and textures and adding depth and colour, they had the chance to create their own unique design to print onto a tote bag.

Silk painting

They also worked with patterns and Christmas symbols as a primary source to create an intagilo print. After producing a design that they drew onto a printing plate and put through the press, a series of amazing professional looking prints were produced.
