–I took part in cooking for the first time when I held onto the baking sheet, gushed Kauko Järvinen when talking about how much the meeting place Hehku, located in the middle of Lauttakylä, means to him.
The meeting place Hehku is at a central place in Lauttakylänkatu. It has become a lounge area which welcomes all young people and adults of working age who are looking for company.
An active visitor of Hehku and SPR friend activities, Sirpa Lehtinen, says loneliness is a concerningly big problem nowadays.
The week dedicated to social workers in the end of March gathered people to converse about how much Hehku matters to the men and women in the area. Especially the regular visitors were heard in the discussion panel, along the invitees. The visitors were very grateful for the shared cooking moments and mushroom picking trips.
