The Royal Voluntary Service have been hosting fun activity sessions with Southlands residents

We have been enjoying fortnightly visits from the Royal Voluntary Service along with members of the community who have been joining us for activities such as exercises, singing and talks.  The group enjoy delicious freshly made sandwiches on arrival and following the sessions visitors and Southlands residents have an opportunity to socialise and chat over cake and teas and coffees.

The Royal Voluntary Service help older people maintain their independence and stay involved in the local community with local volunteers offering help and support. They provide an excellent service in our community and we are delighted to be able to host these sessions.

"Moving here has been my salvation. Knowing that help and support is always on hand has removed all of the anxiety I used to feel and it has meant that I can now get on with my life with very little support at all. Everyone involved in getting me here has been absolutely fantastic, patient, caring and kind."
Apartment resident, Pennington Court
