What is PAUSE?


PAUSE is a free group for people who are in need of company or struggling with everyday stressful situations. It is aimed specifically at anyone needing a friendly place to go.


PAUSE is primarily a free monthly craft session with a range of activities…but it’s also an opportunity to just have a cuppa and a chat, or even just a place to sit without any pressure to talk or take part.


Yvonne had the desire to set up PAUSE having had experience of feeling isolated and lonely in the past. Breaking the cycle of staying indoors and having nowhere to go to meet people can be difficult, so she wanted to do something that people could look forward to that might make this step easier.


PAUSE runs for a couple of hours twice a month but is designed as a drop in with freedom to come and go as you please within those two hours. There is no pressure to do anything, it’s just a friendly environment with people who will do craft, make tea, chat, listen or leave you alone….whatever you need.


PAUSE is held from 10.30 – 12.30 in Marchwood Village Hall in the upstairs Pine Room – which is easily accessible for all – there is a lift available. please check our website calendar for meeting dates.


Please feel free to call in and see us and we look forward to getting to know you. Or get in touch at info@nfcc.org.uk if you have any questions.
