CAMEO 'Come and Meet Others'- Currently Suspended

Every Fourth, Fifth, Last Thursday at 2 p.m. for 1hr

St Aidan's Way
Gravesend

Tea and cakes are served in the Parish Hall from 2pm each month on a Thursday. It is an excellent opportunity to meet new people, have a chat and enjoy the refreshments. We started CAMEO many years ago as a group for elderly people who felt lonely or just didn't often get to meet other people. It still serves that purpose and our lovely, friendly St Aidan's people are eager to welcome you, or anyone you might know who lives in the area and may benefit from it.
