Special celebrations were held on Monday 20 November to mark one year of Meet-up-Monday events at Bishopstone community hub.
The dedicated volunteers from the Friends of Bishopstone Station (FoBS) had a full house of guests as they provided a hot drink and a chance to chat for people living nearby.
The community hub in the Old Parcel Room at the station opened last November and has hosted regular Meet-up-Mondays ever since. The project aims to tackle loneliness and provide a community space to bring people together.
FoBS chair Barbara Mine said: “We have now got amazing Meet-up-Mondays. It’s been really well received and a great joy to see all the different events that happen here now – not just Meet-up-Mondays.”
FoBS vice-chair Jim Stanford added: “We’ve managed to keep this lovely warm space for Meet-up-Mondays going for the last year and we know we will into the future. The events we have run this year have given us a good reputation which means that funders see that we can deliver good quality work and are happy to fund us further.”
