A charity which supports the elderly has set up a free weekly social event to offer people a chance to meet new friends.

Age UK Haringey started the Caring Connections Group at St Ann’s Library, in Cissbury Road, Tottenham, last Wednesday.

The event aims to give elderly people the chance to meet friends for a chat, take up new social activities, and receive more support.

It will run every Wednesday until April 16 and will start at 2.30pm and finish at 4.30pm. Afternoon tea is provided.
