Yesterday afternoon we had our first ‘Happy to chat’ conversation club in Portsoken. The afternoon was a real success and everyone seemed to enjoy it. This new club aims to bring people together, young and old, and to create dialogue and understanding between people from different backgrounds. The conversation club was inspired by the Jo Cox Commission on Loneliness which aims to tackle the silent epidemic of loneliness. Big thanks to James Lattimer and IH London students for their help in making the first session a big success! Watch this space for future dates!
