Social Activities in Petersfield

2018

Social Activities in Petersfield

This is a schedule of social activities that take place on a regular basis in and around Petersfield to help you see what is going on where. It is specifically aimed at older people looking to meet others, or those requiring support or information, but inevitably there is some overlap as many groups are not age dependent.

If you are looking for a list of activities or groups that are more generic, or related to a particular skill or hobby, we suggest you try the Petersfield Library who keep such information. Tel: 0300 555 1387

If you run a group or activity and would like to be included in this schedule please let us know. We want it to be as comprehensive as possible. Contact Rachel Harford at the Winton House Centre, Tel: 01730 266046, info@wintonhousecentre.org.uk.

This schedule is regularly updated and the most current version available to view at www.wintonhousecentre.org.uk.
