Robbie Blair says the sessions are great for seniors seeking companionship.
Former Warkworth RSA manager Robbie Blair has found a new outlet for his talent for encouraging sociability and fun.
He was looking to do a little bit of “God work” and has picked up a role at the Christ Church Selwyn Centre run by the Warkworth Anglican Church.
Every Monday, he hosts a weekly get-together for over 65s. The programme kicks off at 9.30am and runs until noon at the Christ Church hall.
Seniors can enjoy social activities, games, gentle exercises, a programme of events, morning tea, and get practical advice and information.
Robbie says the sessions are great for seniors feeling isolated and lonely, and seeking some companionship.
He says his experiences at the RSA taught him that men, in particular, can find it difficult to reconnect with people, especially after losing their wife. The get-togethers are an ideal opportunity to help them do so.
