News, Projects & Plans
News from CCP
What is going on at Christchurch Community Partnership?
CCP is a busy place to be right now. We have 2 new projects starting in January, plus plans and projects for the whole of 2024, each one aimed at eradicating social isolation in the Christchurch area. With the fabulous new minibus, we hope to organise more outings over Spring and Summer. We are also rolling out our new Thursday Lunch Club, as well as our brand new Sunday Roasts and we are seeing more and more people come to our increasingly popular Coffee Connections mornings. We are also supporting NHS Dorset in a new research project whilst working with local individuals and organisations bringing exercise classes, music and games to local Coffee Connection community members in need of social interaction.
Loneliness kills, let's work together to wipe this out.

New Thursday Lunch Club Launched
Success!! We, as CCP, have hosted our first THURSDAY Lunch Club for 36 happy attendees and it seemed to go down very, very well!
Starting with a Coffee Connections event for the local residents of Homelands with cake & chat aplenty the convivial beginning rolled smoothly into a busy lunch club as more visitors arrived on our new minibus and the remaining tables were filled. Our lunch club guests were treated to a 2 course meal of freshly prepared sausages, mash & gravy followed by peach & apple crumble and custard. Most plates were wiped completely clean. Not even a crumb of the crunchy crumble was left..... Perfect.
Huge thank you to the 8 volunteers who came along to make drinks, lay tables, serve lunches & puddings, wash & clear up and of course chat to all the lunch club attendees. And we'd like to say a warm & well deserved thanks to The Friendly Food Club for serving 2 absolutely delish dishes with great efficiency and huge smiles.
