Our weekly gatherings on Thursday evenings have been regularly meeting at the Arcare Peregian Springs café.
They have plenty of discussions about family, travelling, cooking and reminiscing about their journeys in life.
During this time, there is always plenty of laughs to accompany the stories that are shared.
The weekly gatherings have formed many wonderful friendships and over time, we have all seen them grow.
This is not only a get-together with friends to share what is happening or what is coming up, but it is also a time of celebration when families and friends get together just to have a chat.
Ash serves them their favourite coffee, tea or hot drinks and occasionally, it does become a little noisy.
But nothing sounds better than hearing lots of laughter and hearing them all having a good time socialising.
