As we have worked with Sheffield voices in the past, they have invited us to their August Meeting.
It was not what we expected, as it was more of a social event.
It was at the virgin money shop where different community groups are allocated the use of a room free
every two months for 2 hours at a time.
This includes free drinks and biscuits i.e., lattes, cappuccinos etc. and the following activities for free:
- A 2-lane bowling alley.
- Juke box
- Table football
- Air hockey
- Play station / sky games
- A meeting area
Other floors have free drinks, fruit, and biscuits for anyone to meet with friends and socialise.
We have met with Katy Turner to see if there is a possibly of getting something like this in Doncaster to help people socialise, not feel isolated and feel part of the community. Katy joined us on the following meeting on 3rd October. She spoke with facilitator Kathryn Littlewood to find out more information and we discussed similar possibilities .
We have also mentioned this at the P/B meeting and the scrutiny panel and were informed that there may be a possibility that a presently unused building could be used for social interaction in a similar way.
