Forget-Me-Not Club (Over 55s) BarringtonBack to Activities
The Forget-Me-Not-Club (Over 55's) Barrington is a social group for older people that meets every fortnight - it's a good place to talk and meet friends. For residents of Barrington and surrounding villages including Shepreth, Foxton, Orwell and Melbourn.
This activity is good for wellbeing because
- people who are disabled, lonely or need a friend are given a warm welcome;
- different activities, speakers and outings make each session interesting and entertaining;
- getting out of the house and having something to look forward to is important.
“I joined the club very recently when my husband died and I was welcomed with open arms.”

What to expect
The Forget-Me-Not Club welcomes people over the age of 55 from any local village who would like to join – especially those who are disabled (if accompanied by a carer or companion), lonely or vulnerable. People with dementia or memory loss and their carer or companion are also most welcome to attend.
Meeting every fortnight, Club activities range from guest speakers, meals, bingo and trips out to garden centres, the shops and the seaside.
Jim and Linda, who run the Club, can also visit Club members at home who can’t easily get out and about to make sure they are warm, comfortable and well looked after.
The Club meets from 2.30-4.30 pm every other Thursday – contact Jim for dates. No need to book, just turn up.
If you don’t have your own way of getting there and you live in Barrington or a local village, transport can be arranged. Contact Jim to discuss.
A suggested donation of £2 per session is requested to help to cover the cost of refreshments.
