There is no feeling quite like being lonely and always eating and drinking on your own. Sharing a coffee or tea or eating a meal with others can help reduce the sense of isolation felt by many living on their own, particularly older folk. A number of churches in Caversham organise coffee mornings, lunch clubs or afternoon tea.
