Six Town Housing are helping to coordinate a series of Christmas parties at retirement living schemes that they manage on behalf of Bury Council, to help tackle isolation across the borough.

Activities vary at the different events, including food, quizzes, crafts, music and other entertainment.

Parties are being organised by residents from the schemes, Six Town Housing, Bury Council’s Care at Home team, and other staff. Some of the schemes have raised their own funding to run their events whereas Six Town Housing have supported others.

A spokesperson from Six Town Housing, said, “Christmas can be a lonely time for some, so we are helping organise these parties to bring people together who live in the schemes and the wider community. We hope that the events will create new friendships that stretch beyond the festive season. We will also be using them as an opportunity to speak to tenants and residents about their home and community, to see if there are additional ways we can support them.”

The events are taking place at the following schemes. Some have limited availability, please enquire for more information.
