The Friendship Group began meeting in 2011. Its main objective was, and remains, to be an open resource to anyone who wishes to join.
Meetings are from 2.15—4.15 p.m. and there is a £2 charge to cover light refreshments. We also have a raffle, book exchange and lots of friendly discussion, love and laughter included!
Current membership is between twenty and thirty people from across the locality, meeting every second Wednesday of each month from February to December inclusive.
Members choose the activities for each session. These have included quizzes, speakers and singalongs as well as bingo and bring and buy sales. In December there is Pre-Christmas Party with music and carols.
The volunteers are responsible for arranging a Christmas / New Year’s Lunch which takes place on the second Sunday of January each year. It is a very happy celebration, with a traditional two course roast dinner, wine, chocolates and coffee, as well as singing and festive music and a small prize for every guest! Usually about sixty Friends and Parishioners attend.
