Coffee and Conversation Groups

Do you miss having someone to chat with over a relaxing cuppa?  Would you like to meet others who are like minded and friendly? Age Concern intends to hold more regular Coffee and Conversation Group in Rotorua and surrounding districts because we realise the importance of these meetins for social connection and wellbeing. Please phone the Age Concern office 07-347 1539 to find out more information.

Coffee Mornings are scheduled as the need arises, and are held at a variety of venues in order that people attending do not have to travel far. A speaker is occasionally invited for each coffee morning covering topics such as Falls prevention, Exercise, Nutrition, Enduring Power of Attorney and Scamming.
