Over-50s seeking companionship are encouraged to grab a dart, cue or pack of cards and join in the fun at a games club.

It was founded in 2012 by eight members.
Chairman Pete McEvoy said: “We play darts, short mat bowls, snooker and pool, table tennis and various table games like rummikub, scrabble and the occasional quiz for the less able or the lazy.
“All standards are catered for, from beginners to useless.”
