Contact The Elderly

Contact The Elderly

Do You Have a Warm Heart and a Big Teapot?

Would you host a tea party, for a small group of Monmouth elderly people, in your own home, just once a year?

Contact the Elderly is a charity which aims to help alleviate the loneliness felt by elderly people who live alone, by taking them out to Sunday afternoon tea. In Monmouth, the group meets once a month, from 3.00 pm till 5.30 pm, visiting a different volunteer host each month. For elderly people who live alone, and find it hard to get out and about, it makes a huge difference to be taken out to enjoy a chat and a cuppa. Volunteer drivers pick up the elderly guests, and go along with them to the tea party.

The Monmouth Meander

A Photographic Safari in Monmouthshire and surrounds,
by Richard taylor at Taylor's Photo Safaris.

With snow and ice December and January can be very productive photographic months, despite the finger numbing cold temperatures! The light is beautiful if the sun is out: not too bright but stunning orange and gold in the “golden hours” at sunrise and sunset.
