Our Never Alone programme is designed to provide support for loneliness and other emotional and practical needs plus promote general wellbeing. We have recommendations to local groups who may be able to help you. Finding the right one that meets your needs or interests can be very fulfilling and truly boost your mood.

If you have a local group you would like to add to the listing below, please submit your details via the Google form here.


Friendly, welcoming social groups can be relaxed and informal and offer the chance to chat and build new friendships.

We recommend local social groups and clubs for women and men which provide entertainment, conversation and a range of social activities.


Join us the first Wednesday of each month from 10.30am to 12pm for conversation, speakers and refreshments. Each session will have a theme or a guest speaker to help get conversations flowing. Refreshments will be served, we don't make a charge but donations are always appreciated.


An opportunity for people of the older generations in our community to meet together socially. For more information get in touch at hello@stpaulsletchworth.co.uk

Would you like to get stuck in with an arts project or learn a new craft?

There is so much choice when it comes to arts clubs from painting to pottery making. We can help you find the best group for you.

Drawing together mainly senior citizens, this group is for anyone who enjoys crafts and knitting. We meet the third Monday of every month from 1.30pm.


Walking is a popular choice both for relaxation and fitness. If you would like to get outside a little more, it can quickly become an enjoyable activity, and there are many groups in your area who would love you to join them for beautiful country walks.

Sunday Ramblers

We are a friendly group who enjoy rambles on the first Sunday of the month. We usually walk between 7 and 10 miles.


If you are interested in meeting fellow bookworms, there are reading groups in most towns for friendly discussions and thought-provoking debates. We can help pinpoint the perfect book group for you in your area.

Daytime Book Group

We meet on the second Monday of the month at 2pm in the Premier Inn, Letchworth. We are a friendly group with a capacity of 10. We take it in turn to choose a title (of any genre).

Silent Book Club

The chance to come along and read, alone or with friends, without the pressure of having to finish an assigned book, just bring along whatever you’re currently reading. Between 7pm and 7:30pm will be for food/mingling/getting settled in, then 7:30pm and 8:30pm will be for reading.


Having a wide choice of groups to pick up an old hobby or start a new one can be a wonderful way to meet new people with a similar interest to you.

We meet every Tuesday morning at the Broadway Hotel Letchworth from 10am to 12pm. There is no charge and all are welcome. The emphasis is on short stories and Flash fiction. We bring work and write short pieces on the day to read to the group for discussion. Enjoy writing and a good chat over coffee with a few laughs.
