Re-engage Monthly Afternoon Tea – The Castle Park project has partnered with the Charity Re-engage who support over 75 year olds that are socially isolated and lonely. Once a month a group of up to fifteen guests attend Markwell Pavilion for afternoon tea and supported by a local corporate or organisation, who provide 3-5 volunteers and afternoon tea for the guests. These monthly afternoon teas are a lifeline to the guests who thoroughly enjoy meeting and talking to new people. If you know of an individual who would benefit from attending please contact Alex Berwick from Re-engage, and if you are interested in hosting please email the Friends of Castle Park.
