50th Anniversary of the Tea Club

On the 10th November St Martin’s Church Tea Club in Byker will be celebrating its 50 year anniversary. The club was founded in 1970 after Fr Irwin Robson and Vera Bolter from Age Concern identified a need for a fellowship group in the local area.

For half a century the group has welcomed elderly people but also those who have been recently bereaved, have additional needs or are just looking for some friendly faces. More recently there have been many other clubs and activities for elderly people but St Martin’s Tea Club continues to uphold its original purpose to care for those who are isolated within the fold of the church.
