We have plenty of fun activities lined up for SVI members and friends this festive season. Buy your Christmas gifts, chat with friends, eat festive food, meet Santa, and experience Christmas past by candlelight. It’s all happening! Read on to find out more.
Active 60 – activities and trips for those of us aged 50+
Winter Bazaar Monday 28 November from 11.30am to 2.30pm at the Dartmouth Central Club
The winter festivities start here, with stalls packed full of lovely crafts and goodies to fill those Christmas stockings. Or just blow away the winter blues by treating yourself to something special. There’s help on hand to show you round the stalls, light refreshments to purchase, a chance to take part in the raffle and generally have a jolly time chatting and mingling with SVI friends and guests. It’s a fun way to get your gifts for Christmas and helps raise funds for the Active 60 group. Invite all your friends to come along too. Contact the office for more details or just drop in to the club on Monday 28 November.
Active 60 Santa’s turkey sandwich party
Thursday 8 December from midday to 3pm at the Dartmouth Central Club.
A date not to be missed if you are over 50 yet still a child at heart! Celebrate the joy that Santa brings at Christmas. Join us for a turkey sandwich and nibbles, festive fun and a visit from a special guest who has promised to come again this year. There is a £7 fee to attend this event, which can be paid on the day of the party, but booking is essential. So, call the office or email us to reserve your place at the party table.

Want to meet up in person, join the ladies of SVI on Monday 5 December from 5pm to 7.30pm for an early festive evening of cheese and wine tasting at our base at West Bromwich Town Hall.
