ELDERLY residents in the Stoke parish are being invited to take part in a new group.

Stoke parish councillor George Verney successfully set up a youth club for youngsters in the area, so has now decided to switch his attention to the older sector of the community.

Coun Verney is starting a drop in facility at Avoncroft Arts Centre, where residents will be able to play bridge, dominoes, cribbage, and bowls.

For more information on the new Stoke Parish Senior Citizens Group, call George on 07866047882 or 01527 876044.
