The Wednesday Club

The Wednesday Club meets twice a month at All Saint’s Center in Brain-l’Alleud, not far from Brussels.  It’s a club for older people who speak English, and Radio X reporter, Alison Turner, went along to meet the members and the volunteers who help run the club.

Alison talks to James, who met his wife on a train; Audrey, who is an intrepid octogenarian traveller; and Ruth, who was living in London during the Blitz.

The club is a chance for everyone to have a cup of tea and a chat, and the members share how much it helps alleviate their loneliness.
