Kesgrave Community Chinwag

In Touch Community News

We’ll soon be opening the doors at Kesgrave Community Chinwag, to welcome our guests for another sociable afternoon.

Rock, Pop, Country, and “Old Time” Music will be sung by local singer Gwyn Pritchard at Chinwag on Friday, 21 April. Whilst listening/ singing along/ chatting to friends, our amazing volunteer team will be doing the rounds, serving tea/ coffee and cakes to everyone.

We meet every third Friday of the month from 2-4pm in Ropes Hall at Kesgrave Community Centre.            Doors open at 1.40pm.  Fiona and the team are ready to welcome locals aged 60+ years. Booking opens on the Monday after Chinwag has taken place, for the month ahead. To book your seat(s) please call Kesgrave Community Centre on: 01473 612 648, or email Fiona: Please note you must book in advance.

Refreshments – hot and cold drinks, cakes, and some savoury goodies too. No charge, although we run a Raffle at the session each month which costs £1 to enter. We have a donations box on the way out – our guests’ kind offerings help us to continue offering Chinwag as a free social event.

We keep our Facebook page updated with goings on; for more information visit: Kesgrave Community Chinwag. 

These events are delivered to you by Kesgrave Community Centre, through funding received from East Suffolk Council Community Partnerships. KWMCC registered charity number 1186279
