The Active Retired is a Parish Group based at All Saints’ Church. Some members attend one of the churches in the parish, while others are local residents with no affiliation to any of the three churches. Members cover a wide range of age from new retirees in their 60’s to the late 90’s and beyond.
The Group has access to several wheelchairs, three of them lightweight models newly purchased by the parish, and benefits from the kind cooperation of local community organisations, FiSH and RAKAT, for the provision of mini-bus transport and volunteer drivers. The Group is self-financing; members pay no subscription, but are charged the specific fee for each event or trip. Unpaid volunteer helpers give lifts to events, cater for regular monthly teas and occasional lunches and serve at a varied schedule of activities.
