Hi Karen
Hope you have settled in now. There was a lunch club at St James hall near the traffic lights by the Naval Hospital, they also do lunches in the library and have a friendship club there, and maybe other things you can join.

I have a great little book that gives clubs and pastimes around the area.  You may be able to get one from the library, or an Age Concern shop.  My sister gave me one (I think she got it from the Priory), and many of the clubs in it are for younger people as well as over 60's like me.

Hey Karen 

I work as the Community Worker for you area, working for the Borough Council Neighbourhood team. Our team covers from St Nicholas Road down to the far South of Yarmouth, so anyone living in these areas is very welcome to come and see me any time to discuss any ideas they have, things they would like to do, or issues that they are experiencing, in their area. I can also refer you to other forms of support if you live outside of my area.
Karen, I would be happy to come out to see you if you would like me to provide some assistance in linking you into local community/lunch groups? I would also be happy to provide a referral, to places like centre 81 etc. 
Feel free to pop in to the Comeunity Centre (143 King Street), drop me an email, or ring me: 07947 227 728 / 01493 845 923
