Tea party requests by elderly in Keighley

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Tea party requests by elderly in Keighley Tea party requests by elderly in Keighley

Older people in the Braithwaite and Guard House areas of Keighley spoke about their needs while sharing a cuppa and watching a concert.

The joint tea party and consultation event was held at the estate’s Kingfisher Centre. Around 60 people, mostly aged 60 and over, were asked a series of questions about life in the neighbourhood.

Among the requests were fence and roof repairs, cleaning up of dog mess, drain cleaning and trips out.

They also requested a computer club, quiz nights, bingo, games sessions, speakers, stage entertainment, dancing and craft days. Keighley organisations will draw on the responses when they are devising activities.

The tea party was organised by Incommunities officer Gill Dawn and community development worker Pip Gibson.
