|Purpose||The purpose of Wintergreen is to build friendships between isolated pensioners, who live alone without family nearby, during the Winter months.
* Discussion with the emphasis on positivity. All members are encouraged to make a contribution, and are equally valued.
* Games - including cards/dominoes/scrabble, jigsaws etc.
* Everyone is on a rota to make tea/coffee
* Occassional trips to the local cafe (where we have a discount)
* Various speakers
* Knitting for a charity
Very little is set in stone, but continuity is valued.
