Our Summer Newsletter is out now, full of new events for you all to enjoy! We have our Summer Party, two quizzes, and plenty of days out to places like Cadbury World or Skegness.

Or you can view all our upcoming events by clicking here!

Inside the newsletter, you’ll also find a guide to attendance allowance, covering who can be eligible. If you think you or a friend/family member could be eligible, call into the office and we can make you a referral to Age UK for more assistance.

We hope you all find something to enjoy in our new newsletter!

PS. For those wondering ‘Wasn’t the last newsletter the Winter newsletter?’, you’re absolutely right! We’re putting our newsletter out every four months now, meaning no more Spring newsletter.

Event Updates

Our website has now been updated with two new events: our 90+ Party in May and a Harry Potter Tour excursion in June. As always, if you’d like to attend either of these events please ring us on 01455 557116 or call into the office at our shop and ask to speak to Alison, Jane or Lizzie.

Please note that if you downloaded the Winter Newsletter through our website, the 90+ party was listed as taking place in February and as free for a carer/partner/friend. The party will actually be taking place on the 21st of May and tickets for carers/partners/friends will cost £5.

Christmas Time!

Christmas is coming up and here at Age Concern Lutterworth & District we’re already getting into the swing of the festive season!

This Friday the 30th is the Christmas Lights Switch On, and we’ll be open until 8pm with (limited amounts of) mince pies for sale if you want something to nibble or just to get out of the cold!

On Monday we have over 100 people going out to Blenheim Palace for their Christmas Cinderella Experience, followed by 180 people at our Christmas Party for a four course dinner on Wednesday!

On Saturday and Sunday the 8th and 9th of December it’s the Elf Trail in store, and we’ll be open from 11am – 3pm on Sunday for those hunting the naughty elves.

The store will be open again on Sunday the 16th of September from 11am – 3pm for everyone who still needs to get their shopping done.

We’ll be closed on December the 25th, 26th and 27th, but we wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!

Don’t forget the other events happening around Lutterworth this time of year!

This Sunday the 2nd is the Santa Fun Run – as always, Age Concern Lutterworth is planning on having a team of runners, and we welcome any runners or sponsors! Part of the money raised by the Lutterworth and Lutterworth Wycliffe Rotary clubs this year will go to the Share & Care group, who we’re also a supporter of – find out about their work with those living with dementia and their families on their website here. 

Lutterworth Business Collect is holding a Christmas showcase this Monday the 3rd from 4pm – 8pm at the Wycliffe Rooms, with food, drink and local businesses showcasing a range of gifts and services. Of particular interest is the Lutterworth Security Camera specialists, for those who’ve been considering investing in home security.

On Christmas Day the Wycliffe Rooms is once again hosting a dinner for those who would otherwise be on their own at Christmas.

There’s plenty more going on around Lutterworth and the surrounding villages this Christmas – keep an eye out for the Swift Flash, Lutterworth & District Journal, Country Voice and other periodicals to learn what else is going on!

 

Big Information Day

Our Big Information Day is coming soon! if you have questions about any aspect of growing older, or if you’re just looking for general information about the services and activities availiable in the Lutterworth area, come along and see how we can help.

Our Big Information Day features dozens of service providers who are there to help you!

Everyone will receive a free raffle ticket on the door, and we have tea/coffee and cakes available for just £1.50 each, so even if you’re not sure if we can help you why not come and have a look anyway?

Skegness & Severn Valley Railway

Photos from our Skegness and Severn Valley Railway trips can now be viewed on our site!

We’ve had a great time out this August. First was the trip to Skegness, where we were fortunate enough to enjoy some sunny weather, then a jaunt on the Severn Valley Steam Railway with a two course lunch included. Booking lunch for 106 people to eat together was a daunting task, but we managed!

This September we’ll be going on trips to Baddesley Clinton and the West Midlands Safari Park! We hope to see you there, and if you couldn’t get a place, our autumn booklet should be out soon with plenty more fun excursions planned for everyone!
