Friendship Club


The Friendship Club was formed towards the end of 2010 in recognition of a need in the Town for a meeting place to bring together folk of over 50 years of age for social activity, crafts and knitting, games, chat and recreation on a Saturday afternoon. Many people feel especially lonely at weekends and the Club provides a gathering place for a couple of hours each week from 2 - 4pm.

Although the Club is staffed by Church members, it has no affiliation to the Church and there is no religious input. An open door policy exists where anybody over 50 is free to come along to enjoy a cuppa, biscuit / cake and take part in a multitude of activities provided.

The Club members regularly enjoy a meal together at a local hostelry and there are coach outings during the year to many places of interest. At Christmas a party was held for all with music and sketches provided by members and the Whittlesey Singers. Much fun and laughter was had by all!

The photos show members enjoying one another's company playing a variety of table games.

You are welcome to come along any Saturday afternoon. If you would like more information please contact Lyn at
