First Chinwag Café on Friday last week

01 Jun 2021

Whitianga Social Services held their first Chinwag Café on Friday last week. “The aim of the café is to give people over 50 years of age an opportunity to meet people they might otherwise not have met, have a cup of tea or coffee and a chinwag,” says Social Services manager, Sherryll FitzPatrick.

“We are very pleased to get the café underway and we want to say a big thank you to the Mercury Bay Health Support Trust whose kind donation has helped make it a possibility. There was a lot of conversation on Friday and that is what the Chinwag is all about.”  

The café is held every Friday from 10:00am to midday at the Social Services building at 2 Cook Drive, Whitianga.
