Growing older is an opportunity to embrace the richness of life through meaningful social connections and engaging activities.

Camberley offers a delightful array of events suitable for seniors, creating moments of joy, togetherness, and discovery. Whether you’re an adult child eager to enhance your loved one’s life, or a grandchild with a mission to brighten their days, this list is your roadmap to the vibrant social landscape on offer.

Silvers Social Group

For those aged 55 and over, the Silvers Social Group offers a wonderful opportunity to connect and socialise. This vibrant community gathers every Thursday from 1:30 to 3:30 pm, providing seniors with a warm and welcoming space to enjoy coffee and conversation.

The Silvers Group offers more than just tea and talk though; it’s a place where visitors can explore a range of activities, such as crafts, flower arranging, and willow weaving. The emphasis is on inclusivity, and attendees can choose their level of participation, all within a safe and supportive environment.

Loneliness and isolation can affect anyone as they age, but the Silvers Social Group is there to inspire confidence and companionship. You can visit them at the Vine Centre in Aldershot, just a 20-minute drive from Camberley.

Melody for the Mind

Melody for the Mind invites caregivers and their loved ones to participate in heartwarming group sessions filled with music and fellowship. These sessions are tailored to be inclusive and engaging, making them particularly suitable for those dealing with dementia and memory-related challenges.

This exceptional group is entirely volunteer-driven, with dedicated individuals offering their time and expertise since its first session in 2010. The therapeutic value of music and social activities is well-documented, offering a host of wellbeing benefits by releasing endorphins, serotonin and dopamine, the brain chemicals known for their mood-boosting properties.

The sessions kick-off with a cosy tea and chat, followed by an hour of immersive musical activities. Melody for the Mind meets on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month, starting at 1:30 pm, at High Cross Church in the centre of town.

Knit and Natter

If your loved one is a fan of knitting or simply interested in the world of yarn and creativity, the Knit and Natter Group is your ideal destination. These monthly events offer not only a platform for crafters to come together, but also a space to exchange patterns, share stories, and connect with fellow enthusiasts.

Everyone is welcome, whether seasoned knitters or those just eager for a friendly chat, and age and skill level are no barriers. Attendees are free to bring their ongoing projects, or simply drop by for a pleasant conversation while exploring the artistic works of others within a supportive community.

Join the Knit and Natter group to knit, purl, and chatter your way into a world of creativity on the first Wednesday of each month from 10:00 am at St. Michael’s Church Hall on London Road.

Hampshire Countryside Service Volunteers

Hampshire Countryside Service thrives thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers who generously contributed 100,000 hours last year, making them an invaluable part of the Service’s mission to maintain the countryside. For your loved one, volunteering here offers a chance to make a positive impact on the environment, connect with their community, and enhance their wellbeing by getting out and about.

As a volunteer, they’ll gain new skills, experience, and knowledge while forming friendships within the environmental field. Volunteers partake in activities like wildlife surveys, gardening, park maintenance, and habitat conservation. No special skills are required, just a love for nature. Their contribution will help Hampshire’s communities flourish, and support nature recovery and rights of way maintenance.

Encourage your loved one to join the Conservation Volunteers at Castle Bottom National Nature Reserve every Thursday, or Yateley Common Country Park every Thursday or the last Sunday of each month.
