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.
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. The luncheon club opens on alternate Fridays. It will be open on 9th and 23rd October. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07961 651966.
We provide a Caribbean lunch, an opportunity to socialise, games and an age-appropriate exercise class in a warm, safe, welcoming environment.
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.
At Christmas we have a traditional Christmas lunch with entertainment, members being welcome to invite their friends and families.
During the Coronavirus crisis we worked with TOCS (Together Our Community Survives) to provide weekly food parcels to members of our Luncheon Club and also to vulnerable members of our community.
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.
