Community Foundation's Golden Memories relaunches in BS3

The start of the new season has seen the Community Foundation’s Golden Memories programme redeveloped and relaunched in a big way, with a huge focus in the BS3 area.

Partnering with the BS3 Community at the Southville Centre, the new format of the social inclusion programme will be supporting many over 55’s challenged by social isolation, loneliness and those living with dementia – many of which will be living firmly within the shadow of Ashton Gate Stadium.

Golden Memories offers sporting reminiscence, light physical activity and social interaction opportunities in a range of locations and settings across Bristol, with fortnightly sessions at the Southville Centre every other Tuesday and Wednesday.

Programme manager Kris Tavender adds further details to the sessions: “Our sessions offer a range of ways for participants to engage, as we feel variety and choice is key for everybody, regardless of age or social challenges.

“In BS3 we offer a sports chat-shop every other Tuesday, and also a light physical activity session on the Wednesdays. We wrap everything up with tea, coffee and biscuits – and a simple chance to share and be heard by others. We want our participants to feel safe, and above all feel valued”

Southville Centre sessions:

  • Sports chat – Tuesdays 2-4pm fortnightly, starting October 8th
  • Light activity – Wednesdays 2-4pm fortnightly, starting October 2nd
