A FRIENDLY chat on the phone beckons Keighley people at the Conversation Café.

Keighley Healthy Living is hosting the café as part of its health and wellbeing support services for local people during the coronavirus pandemic.

Melanie Hey, chief officer at KHL, said people could book a regular weekly slot with one of the volunteers, who would call them up, and could also give support and signpost information in many areas.

Melanie said: “The KHL team are missing seeing our regular groups and our local community each week. We appreciate the importance of having regular contact and meeting people.

"Although we have moved many of our groups online we know one of the benefits of attending a group is the opportunity to have a good chat and catch up with people.

"We hope that our conversation cafes will help to support people to feel connected and we look forward to hearing from you.”

Anyone who would like to book a weekly chat or a one-off chat, is asked to make themselves a cuppa, pick up the phone and call 01535 677177.

KHL also runs several online groups, a YouTube channel, a Facebook page and a regular newsletter.
