After much deliberation we have decided to pause all of our events until further notice due to the Corona Virus.
This will include all our Memory Afternoons at Enoch House Colchester Borough Homes, Colchester Arts Centre and Shrub End Social Centre plus our Art Club - our apologies.
We know this will be disappointing to our regulars and we don't take this decision lightly, we just need to ensure the well-being of our guests.
We will be monitoring the situation closely over the coming days and weeks and will be back with all events as soon as possible, we will really miss being with you all - this is just a pause and we will be back laughing, singing and sharing memories soon.
Memory Afternoons are memory sharing and live entertainment befriending sessions for people over 60, to help reduce loneliness and isolation, build self-confidence and friendship circles and to improve social cohesion, particularly around the understanding and engagement of older people. They are also about just having having a fun time in good company.
We have been delivering our Memory Afternoons for 6 years and listening to our participants wishes have developed the concept over this time into delightful and unique people centred events that cherish our guests.
Our Memory Afternoons are engaging and entertaining people centred reminiscence sessions held in community spaces in Colchester, Essex - we chat, we laugh, we drink tea and eat biscuits and have a real great time revelling in the stories from everyone's past (including our own). It is all about celebrating people and the lives they have lived.
