The Friendship Club

The Friendship Club was started in the village in the 1970's to give all residents and friends of the village an opportunity to meet and socialise over a cup of tea/coffee.

In recent years the club is kindly hosted at different homes around the village, normally on the third Thursday of each month between 10:30 and 12:30.

Future meetings planned during 2017 are;

  • April 20th - Thorndale Cottage – Lyn & Bill Bayliss
  • May 17th - "The Sallows" - Mary Parker (NOTE THIS IS A WEDNESDAY)
  • June 15th - "Gartree Cottage" – Patrick Mcarragher
  • July 20th - The Strawberry's & Cream Tea
  • November 16th - Anne & Richard Bloor at "The Springs"
  • December 7th - Christmas Lunch at The Crown


  • January 15th - Jo an Julian Swain at Bunkers Hill

During last winter the group continued to meet for coffee mornings once a month. November's social gathering was hosted by Anne & Richard Bloor at "The Springs" In December 18 of the group's regulars were treated to a lovely Christmas lunch at "The Crown" Tur Langton, all payed for out of club's funds. January's Coffee morning was hosted by Jo & Julian Swain at "Bunkers Hill". In February Vicky Ryall made us very comfortable at her home "Cantu". In March Jennifer & Geoffrey Grant looked after us all at "White House Farm".

At most meetings there is a bring and buy table and a raffle.

In addition to the normal monthly meetings there is a Christmas Lunch, a Summer Lunch and a Strawberry & Cream tea in July

The Club urgently need new members if it is to survive!

So if you can spare an hour, please come and join us. We would love to see you and you will be made most welcome.
