There is a large population of older people in Ashton Vale. The Silver Social group allows this group of over 55s to congregate together at the Youth Club every Tuesday. At the group they are able to sit over a hot drink and enjoy the company of like minded people. It helps to enrich lives of the elderly who might otherwise be lonely and contributes to improving community cohesion and empathy between the generations.
These tea bags are snippets from overheard conversations between people at this group.
