Virtual Aid

Some of you have been coming to the Digital Drop In which runs every Friday at Stanstead Lodge from 1.30 to 3.30pm. Since the Lockdown, Catbytes, the organisation that runs the club, have reorganised what they do. They are now providing support for people’s IT issues over the phone.

As many people are finding themselves isolated at home at this time, there are many reasons why we might want support with our computers, tablets and mobile phones. This is a time when communicating with people remotely is more useful than ever, for practical reasons, and for our mental health.

If you would like to get support from Virtual Aid, please contact Tina at, or 07891 378614. You can find out more about Virtual Aid by looking on the Catbytes Website.

The Drama group, lead by Judy Gordon has been funded by Lewisham for 2 consecutive years.

In September 2019 they were part of the Sixty Up’s programme in where all the group performed at the Sydenham Arts.

In October last year, as part of our Open Day, they gifted us with this performance which was developed by the group themselves and was titled Anniversary. This was inspired by the official picture of the Opening by Queen Mary of the Darby and Joan Club in 1949.

Elie Constantinou, one of the members of the group couldn’t take part in our Open Day, so Cathy Ashley took up the challenge and performed the role that Eli had developed herself to help the group out. I think Cathy is a natural but tell me what you think!

We hope you enjoy it!
