Members comment on Elderly Aid activities and trips

Here’s what the members of Middleton Elderly Aid think about the events and trips organised from the centre on Acre Road in Middleton.

Trip to Ryecroft Hall

“Brilliant food and entertainment.

“Staff got you up to dance, if you wanted to. Staff danced with you. Including Barn Dancing and Line Dancing I would go again if I had the chance. The staff meet you at the door and saw you to your table.

“A good time was held by all.”


Trip to Cleveleys and Ryecroft Hall

“Our day started at Cleveleys, we had a look around the main street of Cleveleys and then onto Ryecroft Hall.

“Ryecroft Hall was lovely, and the staff were very friendly. We had a nice meal then a bit of dancing. A great day was had by all.”

Pie and Peas

“I have been attending the Pie and Peas evening at Middleton Elderly Aid every 2 weeks, for quite a while. I really enjoy it. The food is good value for money.

“As well as getting Pie and Peas you have a scone with cream as a sweet. Lots of people attend and its held in a friendly atmosphere.

“We also have Bingo and How. It gets you out on a evening, I would fully recommend it.”



“My name is Catherine, I knit Blankets for Middleton Elderly Aid. If anybody as any scraps of wool, they don’t use any more, I would really appreciate it .

“Please drop off at Middleton Elderly Aid. Thank You.”


Day trip to Sunlight village and Warrington Market

“The weather was very sunny and warm for our trip. The houses at Port Sunlight (for the workers) were perfect and Grade II listed. The market was not up to much, but a lot of shops to go round. We came home via the Mersey Tunnel.”
