A SOCIAL group is being launched in Hindley.

The Wigan Branch of the Oddfellows, a friendly society which provides social activities, care and support, is launching a new Care to Share social lunch group which will meet on the first Friday of every month, starting March 7.

The regular open-to-all socials will take place at Tudor House, Hindley Community Centre on Leigh Road from 12pm until 2pm.

Oddfellows social organiser Christine Ward-Mills said: "These friendly socials are a chance to hear about how our team and members can help you and a great way to find out if you could use your skills to become more involved in the community by helping others."

Notice of attendance is required for catering purposes and there is a £1 entrance fee. For more details call 07902 883170 or email christine.ward-mills@oddfellows.co.uk.
