The clubs run from 11am to 3pm and includes a hot meal and entertainment.

Participants must be:

* Living in Watford Borough or Three Rivers District

* 55 years or above

* OR a Carer

If you or you know of anyone who would appreciate a day out over the festive period then please call 01923 216967 or email for more information and an application form.

The Five Ways Friends team must receive completed application forms by 5pm on 23 December 2014.
