Once a month a small group of people, mainly retired aged from 50 to over 90, meet in the circle bar of Leeds’ very own City Varieties. The group is called The Fashionable Lounge.
”Memories are shared, heart-warming, moving, revelatory and funny. Everyone has their own story to tell. No-one is ever left out. A feeling of cosy camaraderie has grown. Sometimes we play games and we have even been known to do a bit of play acting which is fitting for the venue”.
At present the group are involved in an Inter-generational project along with Leeds Older People’s Forum.
Caring Together was involved in the initial pilot of the Fashionable Lounge project and it is good to see that it was such a success that most of those involved from Caring Together are still attending.
