Getting out and about is a great idea to meet new people and take part in some interesting new activities. Oxford has a wealth of these, check out a few we know about below!
Having an activity to head to is a great way to keep connected, keep your mind sharp with a new hobby or interest or even just spending some time with new people. Some of these events or activities also offer information and signposting which is really important when it comes to the important business and organisations that you may want to reach in Oxford.
Run by Age UK this Social Group runs similarly to a reading club. The group shares thoughts on books and reads new ones as and when. A fairly new initiative to Oxford Age UK Tea Books is a social book group for the over 60s. The group’s aim is to help older people to share a love of books and reading while making new friends. Each group is run by a volunteer group leader, who liaises with the local library in Oxford to borrow the books, so there is no need for group members to buy them. The groups meet once a month, and there is a small charge of £1 per meeting. So what a great opportunity to meet up and share a cup of tea and a book.
There are a few Tea-Books Groups happening throughout Oxford refer to our WOW Guide for the one closest to you!
