  • May celebrated her birthday at a recent lunch club. Happy birthday May!!
  • Father Colin retires
    Father Colin of the Annunciation church has retired. At different times he has been a volunteer, trustee and always an unstinting supporter of our charity. Thank you Father Colin for all your support. We wish you a happy retirement.
  • Codelia celebrated her 82nd birthday, with husband Peter, at our lunch club. Happy birthday Cordelia from everyone at The Good Neighbours!
  • Our volunteers get together was a great success. Volunteers give a little of their time every month but it makes a huge difference to our senior citizens. Without them we could not function!
  • There was also some very useful wheel chair safety training.
  • We don't know how we would cope without our minibus. It enables us to take up to 10 clients on one journey. On our recent trip to Morrisons the bus was so overloaded with shopping we had to employ a seat for the over flow.
  • Age UK Barnet is hosting a series of free-to-play Scam Bingo games to support local older people to protect themselves against fraud and scams. Helen and Gill from Age UK ran our session last Tuesday.
  • A wonderful outing for our clients last Saturday to watch a production '9 to 5' by the Mill Hill Musical Theatre Company.
  • A grateful thanks to the Flower Bank in Barnet which kindly gifted our lunch club's senior citizen with daffodils.
  • Our weekly shopping bus trip as popular as ever! A special thanks to our volunteer bus assistants.
  • A royal Coronation Party to remember. Great atmosphere and music too!

Barnet Civic Award

Great news! We have won the award for our work in the community but as Derrick, our Head of Trustees, said the recognition of our work in Mill Hill and Burnt Oak was far more important than winning the award.

Without volunteers, we would not be able to offer the variety of services which we provide at present. If you can spare a few hours a month, it would make a real difference to someone’s quality of life. Find our more.

Our 2 lunch clubs covering MIll Hill and Burnt Oak  offer 2 course meals with tea or coffee at a very reasonable price.  An opportunity to socialize and meet new people. Find out more …

Lottery Community Fund Grant

Great News! We have received a grant from The National Lottery’s Community Fund to help with our minibus costs for 2023/24. This will be a great help and a big THANK YOU from all our clients.

Where people are lonely or housebound, we may be able to arrange a regular weekly or fortnightly visit from one of our volunteers. Find out more

Social Events and Outings

Join us on one of our special events that can include our regular bingo afternoons and trips to garden centres and places of interest.

Where the use of public transport is difficult for regular clients: senior citizens who routinely use our services. We can provide transportation by minibus to some of our events, such as the lunch clubs. Volunteer drivers also are available to give lifts in their own vehicles to hospitals and GP surgeries.  Find out more

Good foot health is something that many of us take for granted. However, if our feet develop problems they can affect many aspects of our lives. Poor foot health can lead to reduced mobility, which in turn can produce serious physical, mental and social consequences. This is particularly true for older people.

Our service  is designed to keep older people mobile by doing regular nail cutting, treating corns and removing hard skin. Find out more
