The Friendship Group meets every fortnight, with speakers, outings, a game of bingo and many other activities, plus a good chat over a cup of tea and biscuits. Anyone wishing to join the Group will be made most welcome. Members pay 1 to include refreshments and a raffle ticket (donations of small prizes are always welcome). There is usually a bookstall and a stall with other items for sale.

Each year the Group raises funds for a different charity. In 2006 over 1,000 was raised for the Cleft Lip and Palate Association. This year they have chosen two charities to raise funds for, The Five Villages First Responders and Alzheimer's Society. 2007 is the 15th Anniversary of the Friendship Group and to celebrate this milestone a cookbook is planned with favourite recipes and hints. Look out for the publication! If you would like to know more, please contact Kath (Chairperson) on 848062 or Hazel (Secretary) on 848053.
