Devon Business & Education Trust have recently launched a local project, “Time Together”, supporting the over 70’s in our area.

This important new initiative has been established to provide time and a warm space on a regular basis for those living in our local rural areas who find accessing opportunities to engage with others difficult. As the colder months draw closer and the nights draw in, the opportunities for a stroll down the lane and an impromptu chat become less and it can make people feel lonely and isolated.  

With this in mind, the aim of the programme is to provide monthly events for people who are isolated or lonely to spend ‘time together’ with the concerns about transport and finance taken care of.

We have our first 2 events booked into the diary. Firstly, we have a roast dinner on Friday 18th November at the Six Bells in Payhembury, between 12pm and 2pm.  We will also be holding a Christmas lunch on Wednesday 14th December at Devon Business Education Centre, Tale which is a repeat of the very successful event held last Christmas.

We would love to hear from you if you or someone you know, would benefit from this new group, whether they be a loved one, friend or neighbour. If you would like more information, or would like us to start the invitation process then please contact Anita Elsom on 07777 617 415, or via our email address
