West Cumbrians get cake and company at Camerton Hall
Last updated at 20:57, Thursday, 14 June 2012
More than 40 socially isolated people enjoyed an afternoon tea at Camerton Hall near Workington.
The event, which was organised by the Centre for the Third Age, saw people from friendship groups in Bridgefoot, Seaton and Cockermouth and the surrounding area come together to enjoy refreshments put on by Faith Cole, owner of Camerton Hall.
Mary McFadyen, of Bridekirk, who was at the event with members of the Bridekirk Friendship Group, said: “There are many people who live on their own and this gives them the opportunity to come out and meet people in lovely surroundings.”
Hannah Bradley, co-ordinator for the Centre for the Third Age, said: “The people here don’t get out very much and this is a lovely way to make them feel special for the afternoon.
“After our last trip to Winder Hall near Cockermouth we had a great response and everyone was asking me where we were going next.”
