The Laurels was started fourteen years ago at Felsham under the auspices of “Age Concern”. The project was highly successful and now members meet every Thursday for a happy and lively day, which includes an appetising and nourishing meal. Outings are organised, which are equally popular. Transport is provided.

If you wish to become a member, referral by your GP or Social Services is required. If interested, contact Mrs Robinson in the first instance.

Volunteer helpers are always appreciated and Mrs Robinson will be pleased to hear from anyone interested in this enjoyable and rewarding work.
