This month’s news of activities for older people in Fitzrovia. 

Ming – 50 years that changed China will have a free community view at the British Museum the evening of Saturday 22 November. Please let me know if you would like a ticket by calling 020 7580 4576.

Time to Sing is still going at Fitzrovia Court, 24 Carburton St Mondays 11am – 12.30pm. Come and sing familiar songs with friendly people!

Lunch on Mondays is available at the George and Dragon pub on the corner of Cleveland and Greenwell Sts from 12.30, at a discounted price of £3 for main meal only, drinks extra. This is through a kind donation from Sir Robert MacAlpine, contractors on the Middlesex Hospital site.

All Souls Clubhouse has a range of friendly exercise classes available. They also run two very useful services: Clubcare which includes visiting and other help, and a shopping trip available every fortnight on Thursday. The lunches on Wednesdays are also still going. If you’re interested in any of these, please call the Clubhouse on 020 7255 9756.

Many recipients of this newsletter will know that Linda Fletcher, the scheme manager at Fitzrovia Court, is retiring at the end of October, after 25 years working for Westminster Council, more often than not on call 24/7. Very best wishes to Linda as she embarks on a new life of leisure! And a big welcome to Deborah Okorie, the new scheme manager, who can be reached on 020 7641 4063 / 8499 dokorie@westminster.gov.uk
