Kettle On & Bingo
There are many people of mature years (60+ yrs) in Stratford-upon-Avon who would
enjoy a sociable afternoon.
The Stratford Playhouse initiated Kettle On with musical entertainment in March 2019 and our Club, who wanted to serve this valued part of our Community, offered a Bingo Service
once every other month from July 2019.
This proved to be a great opportunity to meet new friends, have a good chat over a cup of tea and biscuits and relax in friendly setting with Music or Bingo.
Normally, it meets one afternoon a month but Bingo is on hold while
Covid restrictions are in place.
We are hoping this will be able to continue in the not too distant future.
Not every older person finds it easy to get out and about so we’ve developed
another initiative-our Bingo Service.
Here, we went to where our mature locals live and so between July 2019 - February 2020
we made ten visits to Care Homes and a Dementia Care Group.
Residents really appreciated the opportunity for some Bingo fun and to chat with our Lions.
Now we are busy contacting Care Homes to see if their residents like the idea of ‘Zoom Bingo’.
We would be happy to provide this service and are also keen to restart our usual
face-face Bingo service as soon as we can.
