Extra Time Hub
Lincoln City Foundation’s EFL Extra Time Hub is part of a national network designed to increase social interaction for over anyone who is retired, semi-retired or approaching retirement. The hubs aim to use the power of their partner football club in the local communities to bring people together
Studies show that 42% of those over the age of 55 are inactive. EFL Trust’s own research revealed many people would like the opportunity to meet peers to feel less isolated, live well and do things they enjoy.
The Extra Time Hub aims to make a positive difference to the lives of retired and semi-retired people and for them to find out about the range of activities on offer in their free time as well as give them the chance to meet and spend time with other like-minded people from the area.
“I was petrified the first time I went; I didn’t know why I was scared as everyone was so friendly. I have been going since August. I really enjoy it and look forward to it now. I have met so many friendly people and made new friends. It’s nice to join in all the activities and sometimes to just sit and talk”.
