Prestigious Duke of York’s Community Initiative award given to Grey Matter in Todwick

Published: Monday, 13th March 2017

Grey Matter in Todwick is one of just 42 Yorkshire based community groups who have recently been recognised by the prestigious royal reward scheme The Duke of York’s Community Initiative.

The group was setup 18 months ago in response to a village survey that identified the need for a support network to serve the older residents, which would help combat loneliness which is known to adversely affect health.

The club meets every Friday at 2:00pm for two hours, and provides a friendly, supportive and stimulating environment for the over 55s. The club serves Todwick village and adjacent communities and is based in the modern Todwick Church Hall, Lindley Croft. New members are very welcome, just turn up or phone Janet 01909 771344 or Richard 01909 772204.

The club is supported locally by Todwick Parish Council and Todwick Church with assistance from Age UK Rotherham, Voluntary Action Rotherham and Rotherfed. For more information contact Richard on mobile 07790449007 or email rbrundish@hotmail.co.uk
