In Touch

Everyone likes to feel part of something, and getting out and about in the community can make all the difference to how you feel – both physically and emotionally. Why should it all come to a halt in later life?  GRCC's In Touch Special Projects offer people an opportunity to get involved, enjoy activities, and share memories.

Knitivity at Gloucester Cathedral

In 2015, thanks to the work of enthusiastic knitters across Gloucestershire, the In Touch Knitivity made its first appearance in Gloucester Cathedral for Christmas.  The large-scale scene was very popular with visitors so in 2016 the Knitivity returned with an even bigger cast.  It continues to occupy knitting groups around the county as new animals are added and worn characters replaced.

Following public nominations at a craft day in the cathedral this summer, one of the new additions for 2017 is the Christmas octopus.  He will be joining Alice the camel, Knit and Knatter the sheep, Knitilda the cow, Derek the donkey, Horace the horse, owls, angels, shepherds, kings, and of course Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus in Gloucester Cathedral from 4 December 2017 until 6 January 2018.

  

Remembering Sport at Kingsholm

Our social group for men aged 50 plus meets every month in The Lion's Den at Kingsholm Stadium.  It's a chance to get together and talk about watching, playing and supporting sport with other men from around the county.  A free sandwich lunch with tea, coffee and squash is provided.

You can find the dates for future Remembering Sport gatherings on our Events page.

 

We also have a database of clubs and activities for older people in Gloucestershire.  If you're interested in finding out about the ones near you contact Julie Pritchard on juliep@grcc.org.uk.  We also have a speakers list available for clubs - contact Julie for more details.
