Helmsdale Village Hub has now re-opened on a Monday and Friday with social distancing and hygiene measures in place. This was made possible following a details risk assessment process carried out by Connecting Communities in partnership with NHS Highland. We hope to begin reintroducing more of the activities below over time. If you are interested in attending the Hub please contact us.
Supporting general well-being through socialising, activities and a good meal
We are delivering a varied programme of activities at the Helmsdale Village Hub every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10.30am. The Hub offers a good opportunity for people to socialise, have a go at new things and get a delicious meal, all in a friendly and safe environment. The regulars at the Hub have been telling us the things they like most are seeing new people and having visitors of all ages. The Hub is open to all!
Our programme features a variety of activities, including our Coffee Club, Helmsdale Walking Group, and Strength & Balance Exercises, which usually take place on a Monday. On Wednesdays we play whist. We often have music at the Hub and also regular sessions with our Creative Writing Club. Once a month (usually the last Friday of the month) we host our popular Cream Tea Cafe. Lunch is provided at the Hub each day.
Upon arrival, there is an opportunity for a cup of tea and a chat. Arts and crafts, gardening and board games are available every day, and where possible we go out for walks. Afternoons are spent reminiscing, chatting, playing games, doing quizzes, exploring our large interactive screen or watching DVDs. This is open choice and down to those in attendance to decide.
We offer cake, tea, coffee, or soft drinks and a two-course lunch (must be ordered by 10am) for £5.45 per day.
Due to any unforeseen circumstances, the activities shown on the calendar below may be altered. Any suggestions or requests will, where possible, be accommodated.
