Tingley and East Ardsley residents are invited to take part in afternoon activity sessions being laid on by a medical practice.

Leigh View Patient Club hosts the sessions which involve card making, a games corner, therapeutic colouring and flower arranging amongst other activities.

The club is made up of volunteers, who are registered patients at Leigh View Medical Practice.

The patient club has been talking to patients at the practice to see what activities would be of interest to them as well as people in the local community.

They are now running social craft and activities afternoon once a month, either on a Wednesday or Thursday.

Anne Suttle-Burton, chairperson of the club, said: “Having the craft and activities afternoon is a great way to get the local community together.

“We’re hoping that this will attract people of all ages, especially people who don’t go out often, as it will give them an opportunity to meet new people.”

Dr Simon Hulme, GP at Leigh View Medical Practice, said: “We’re lucky to have a group of volunteers who want to do something for their local community.

“I would encourage people to give it a go and see for themselves how much fun it is.”

The next social craft and activities afternoons will take place on Wednesday, May 18 and Thursday, June 16.

Both sessions run from 1-3pm at the Ballroom at Leigh View Medical Practice.

Anyone interested in attending can call Courtney Hill on 0113 2537628 or courtney.hill@nhs.net.
