What We Do
Social CHATs are what we are calling our get-togethers. Where we can meet new friends and contacts in a friendly social occasion and drink a cuppa or two. We can also play a few board games, bring your crafts along too or join in a quick exercise lesson from our Personal Trainer.
If we decide we need to chat some more we can do this at a time and place convenient to both of us.
At our new base, The Henry Cook Centre, we have a dedicated room where we can go off and talk in private every week. Just call us before so we can or text to make sure we are not overbooked, 07450028410. Remember we can always call you back!
We all need a little support now and again and that's when CHAT2Us are here to help.
For gone are the neighbour - hoods from times gone by when if we were stuck with a problem we could just knock on a door.
We can be that friend and help with problems. From who to go to when you have a problem with your housing issues to ones which mean you need someone to go to court with you. Or maybe there's a form that you can't fill in or a problem reading or using a computer. CHAT2Us will do their best to help you out.
Then what we do next is up to you!
We like to support our community and if there is a Litterpick across our area we like to join in.
Our members are free to select an area near them that isn't looking at its best and feel that we can go and clean. Well controlled children and dogs are welcome.
Our Litterpicks are always a good social event. Getting in contact with your neighbours at the same time caring for our environment.
CHAT2US Friendship Group
Life at chat started as a monthly lunch group. The ladies enjoyed each others company so much they wanted to get together more often.t When I informed them that CHAT (our prior name) didn't have the finances to hire the hall weekly. One of our members, Julie D'Arcy, jumped in with'" You can use my shop!" 'One of a Kind Studios'. So that's what happened, a weekly slot at her shop and the third Monday of the month back at Thorngate for our lunch group. A big "THANK YOU JULIE!!" from all of us.
However times move on, and better accommodation was found at The Henry Cook Centre, South Street. This is on direct bus routes from all of Gosport making it more accessible for most people. However, we still provide assistance with taxi's to those who would not be able to attend otherwise (mainly the elderly and disabled).
CHAT2Us members knit tiny hats, and cardi's for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Queen Alexandra Hospital. They also knit fidget sleeves for those suffering from nerve conditions and are donated to the Adult Services or local homes.
If you enjoy anything crafty come and join us next Monday!
