The ECA Luncheon club provides a Caribbean lunch, an opportunity to socialise, games and an age-appropriate exercise class in a warm, safe, welcoming environment.
The ECA Luncheon Club has reopened and moved to a new venue. We have put measures in place to ensure it is a safe environment. It takes place at Green Towers Community Centre, Plevna Rd, Edmonton Green N9 0TE from 12pm to 3pm. (Next to Edmonton Green Shopping Centre).
The luncheon club opens the first three Fridays of every month.
In addition to our weekly activities we have regular guest speakers and entertainers. Our speakers are experts in their field and can offer useful information and advice - past presentations have covered health and estate planning.
We celebrate festivals. At Christmas we have a traditional Christmas lunch withentertainment, members being welcome to invite their friends and families. We also plan to celebrate Windrush Day on Friday 24th June.
We welcome new members. For more information or to book a lunch, please email us at email@example.com or call 07908 600420.
The over 50s Network
Enfield Caribbean Association Over 5O’s Network aims to raise the profile of the Caribbean over 50’s population, and to provide a platform where members can receive information and guidance. The network provides facilities where members can meet, socialise and keep in-touch. The network is also involved in with the Enfield Over 50s Forum activities where information can be accessed on issues related to economic concerns, health, social well-being, care in the community and many other problems pertinent to specific and cultural needs.
Below are some examples of how the Enfield Caribbean Association can help you to increase your social network, access information relevant to your circumstances and general outlook, to improve your health and well-being and preserve a positive focus on your cultural identity.
Enfield Over 50s Forum
The ECA is a member of Enfield over 50’s Forum which provides information from a multi-cultural aspect to the general over 50’s population in Enfield. The Forum also provides political debates on both local and national government issues. This entitles our members to attend their activities and events such as Monday morning cinema club at Cineworld, starting at 10.30am: entry £3.00.
During the year the ECA also organises cultural trips for all members, their friends and families. In 2019 we sourced discounted tickets for the highly acclaimed West End play Nine Night. For those members requiring it, we arranged transport by minibus.
We have organised a trip to see Get Up Stand Up, the musical about Bob Marley’s life at the Lyric Theatre, Piccadilly on Wednesday 16th March for 30, of our members. As a community group we have been able to source discounted tickets. We are delighted to be able to take our senior citizens and those members requiring transport in a minibus.
