“You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.”

― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

The Feelgood Factory runs an expanding programme of social and interest groups for local people.  The purpose of these groups are to improve health and quality of life by:
  • Enabling those who take part to meet others with similar interests
  • Encouraging local people to make friends and support one another
  • Keeping minds active and maintaining an interest in life.

The following groups are run regularly.  Most groups are always able to take on new members at any time but a few have restricted numbers so it is advisable to ask in the Feelgood Factory or ring 291 8010 first.

If you are not quite sure about what to do or if an activity is right for you, please feel free to ring us and ask to speak with a Mentor. They know what we have available (and what is available elsewhere) and they will be happy to have a chat and help you make the right decision for you.

Further details about these groups can be found in the Choices Booklet.
