Support & Advice

The Joanies

The Joanies are a group of women of various ages who meet at YMCA Neath every Monday afternoon.
There are different activities each week which include speakers, music, crafts and trips away. The ladies enjoy quizzes and members are always keen to enjoy afternoon tea. They are a very friendly group and offer support to each other. It’s an outlook for senior citizens to meet and socialise on a weekly basis.
Transport can be arranged through ‘Community Transport’ and refreshments are provided.
Every Monday 1:00 – 4:00pm – £3 per week.
