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.
