St Martin’s Social Care Project is about offering  local older people a range of opportunities to stay connected and active and is lead by local people like you who make it happen and direct the activities. Based at St Martin’s Church Centre in Perry Common, we offer a twice weekly lunch club, tea dances, film afternoons, EXTEND chair-based exercises, craft, men’s work-shed, trips out and community social events. Much of what we do is based on laughter and encouraging friendships, with the ultimate goal of working together for the common good of local people.
