The Rykneld Homes Community Involvement Team had a great time at the
THE GREAT DRONFIELD GET 2GETHER
which took place on Tuesday 16 October 2018
Dronfield Sports Centre, The Civic Centre, S18 1PD
The Great Dronfield Get 2gether is an annual free event for the local community to raise awareness of local provision available to support people aged 55 years and above living in the Dronfield area.
The aim is to provide an informal, welcoming and enjoyable environment for residents to find out about a variety of local services, organisations, clubs and groups that are available to support you to maintain independence and be better-connected and more socially active within the local community.
There was a wide range of services and groups who had stalls on the day, providing you with information, support and advice. There were also taster activities such as the Rykneld Homes kurling set and a refreshments corner, serving free hot drinks and light refreshments for all attendees.
One of the customers at our stall said, "This is a very useful event as I find it hard to find out information in the local area as I don't have the internet, and I get to speak to people!
"I'm really looking forward to getting involved in the Rykneld Homes activities at Morley Place Community Room after speaking to a member of Rykneld staff.
"I've met new people here and I was unaware of how much is available in the local area for pensioners - I can't wait to get involved!
