With a new chairman at the helm of the Precinct Centre in St Marychurch, it is all set with a new programme of activities to wage war on loneliness in the Bay.

At a meeting held on Saturday, Arthur Christian was unanimously elected chairman of the centre set up 25 years ago by public subscription to offer a social base and help improve people's health and wellbeing.

Alan Lark was elected as his deputy.

Arthur highlighted the year's programme of events and activities that will encourage members to live more positive lives and reduce loneliness in our community.
