Memory Tea is a new addition to the groups and events hosted by Chain Reaction.
Chain Reaction is a service funded by Newcastle City Council to provide support for older people that helps them live independently.
Groups like Memory Tea aim to give people at risk of loneliness the chance to meet new people, catch up with friends, and naturally grow their own support in the community.
As well as the opportunity to chat over a cuppa and a cake, regular activities are offered. These vary from session to session but include music, crafts, memory boxes, local history, and games.
Memory Tea is held every other Friday at the Quaker Meeting House in Gosforth from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. You can call 0300 3007070 for the next date.
It is dementia-friendly, and carers, friends and family members are always welcome. There is a suggested donation of £2 to help cover costs.
The Chain Reaction team can also offer support about benefits and Lasting Power of Attorney.
