Mayor joins club's tenth anniversary celebrations

Thursday, 25th September 2014.

The Mayor of Haverhill, Cllr Roger Andre, joined 20 members of the Monday Morning Club at Leiston Community Centre on Monday to celebrate the tenth birthday of the group.

A centrepiece birthday cake featuring a teapot and cup was made for the occasion by one member.

The group meets every Monday, from 9.30am to 11.30am, at Leiston Community Centre, to share refreshments, conversation and to hear from speakers on a wide range of issues of interest to all.

Organisers Joan Key, Margaret Miller and Maureen Croft arrange outings and lunches for members.

The group welcomes any residents of the town and has arrangements to pick up members who wish to be accompanied to the meetings.

The group welcomes new members and is supportive of new members who may be anxious about joining – a warm and friendly welcome is guaranteed.

Local ward councillor and deputy town mayor, Cllr Maureen Byrne, attends regularly to share news about local issues and to hear concerns of residents.

Cllr Byrne said: "It is delightful to see residents in our community coming together to share interests and discuss local issues in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

"The club encourages residents who live alone to participate in social events and take an active role in their community.

"The lunches and outings offer real enjoyment and contribute to addressing isolation in our community. Sharing our interests and concerns in a lively comfortable environment makes for a healthier and more sustainable community."

Cllr André, said: "Joan Key, Margaret Miller, Maureen Croft and the many other members who organise the meetings and events are to be congratulated on the warm and friendly welcome at club events.

"Promoting a sense of well-being in our community is an important aim for us all – that this can be achieved within the community, by the community, is a clear sign of how robust our local community is and how we can all take a part in building the society we desire. I sincerely hope the club continues to flourish as it has over the last ten years."
