Clarence Park invite Church Club to them for monthly meet ups…

Clarence Park attends a Church club on a Thursday for ladies only. It is called ‘Safehaven’ and was set up as a safe place for ladies to go who may be suffering domestic violence, mental health issues or any problems. However, it has really grown, and while still ‘ladies only,’ around five female residents attend every week.
They enjoy delicious homemade food and spa treatments from Weston College students. They also sing around the piano and do arts and crafts.

Over the summer the group stops because the Church closes for the holiday. However, a small team wanted to keep it going.
First, Clarence Park residents enjoyed meeting in their local park, and their chef and the Church team clubbed together to provide cream teas and a lovely lunch for the ladies. They enjoyed a fantastic few croquet matches around the park too.

As the weather has become worse, residents invited the church team to Clarence Park, still having a ‘bring and share’ community lunch.

Activities Coordinator, Clare, played the guitar, the visiting ladies provided Bingo and card making.
Clare said,

“It has been such a huge success that no one wanted it to end. The team of Church ladies have offered to come once a month on a Wednesday now to help host a ‘ladies community lunch’ with arts, crafts and Bingo. The Church has also approached me to do a photo display of what we have done over the summer, and the joy community brings. More importantly, some of our female residents who prefer to stay in their rooms have joined us and loved it!”
