eawa social hub advertA new "social hub" for Enfield residents aged 50 and above is launching soon and the organisers are inviting people to join.

The project is being run by the Enfield Asian Welfare Association (EAWA), but people from all communities will be welcome. Project coordinator Chhaya Tailor explains:

"Our aim is to reach out to isolated and hard to reach people of all communities. We'll be meeting up once a week in Enfield Town and Edmonton Green libraries for refreshments and a bit of socialising and to join in various activities, and then we'll go round the shops together in small groups, stopping off for a coffee or for lunch. It will provide a bit of company instead of people being alone in town centres."

Activities in the libraries will be free and will include chair-based yoga with a professional teacher. But members will have to pay when having coffee or lunch in a cafe.

"Naturally, we'll be conforming to the social distancing rules laid down in the libraries and the groups will need to be quite small.

"We hope that this will help people who've become cut-off from other people to restart their social lives."

If you're interested in joining or just want to find out more, you can contact Chhaya Tailor on 07782 541789 or email her at e
