Kesgrave Community Chinwag

The Kesgrave community chinwag is planning to have it's first in-person meeting on the Friday 16 July!

All being well, we plann to have our first in the flesh Chinwag on Friday 16 July from 2-4pm in Ropes Hall at Kesgrave Community Centre.

We hope this will be a very sociable welcome, an opportunity to catch up with old friends and meet new ones, to enjoy drinks and cakes and to find out about other local groups that might interest you. There’s no need to book, although we will need to take your details when you arrive.

Going forward, Chinwag will be on the third Friday of each month and include a warm welcome and refreshments. Added to this, we will have various entertainment and activities, guest speakers, information stands and more, bringing you something different each time.

Chinwag is for ages 60-plus in Kesgrave and surrounding villages including Martlesham, Rushmere and Little Bealings. There is no charge although we will run raffles, tombolas and the like at each session.

If you are interested in volunteering with us, please email:

Here’s a chance to become part of a friendly, welcoming team whilst connecting with your local community. You could help with serve refreshments, run activities, meet and greet and lots more.

In the meantime, we will have Chinwag catch-ups via Zoom from 2-3pm on Fridays 21 May and 18 June. If you would like to join us, please email and we will respond with a link for you to access. These are very relaxed; last month we chatted for a while then had two foodie quiz rounds with homemade cakes for prizes.

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

The Chinwag team is very much looking forward to meeting you all. for all events and activities visit:
