  • Monthly Coffee Morning - First Monday of Every Month

    Meet at Greyfriars Hotel (the Venetian Lounge, next to the bar) at 10.30am for our monthly Coffee Morning. The Coffee Morning idea really has paid off. Each month, members meet to discuss what is happening in our town, to raise issues of concern, to make suggestions, to find out what progress we have made in resolving problems and to generally chat and enjoy coffee and Greyfriar’s very nice biscuits! We have been running these events for a year and the Executive Committee have taken up a lot of the issues raised with some really good out-comes. It is, on occasion, remarkably satisfying! We do hope you will join us at some, if not all, coffee mornings this year, always held on the first Monday of the month, including Bank Holidays if they happen to fall on the first Monday. Cost: Free but donations to the work of the Society welcomed on the day.

  • New Year Lunch - Saturday 14th January 2017

    Meet at the Siege House in East Street at 12.15pm for our New Year Lunch.

    I have booked the area at the far end of the ground floor for us again. Please come and enjoy a three-course meal (with coffee to follow) with us. Parking is available behind the restaurant, although the car park is not vast. I would suggest car sharing with friends if you can, or come by bus as the bus stop is close by. Please don’t park in the nearby streets as parking wardens patrol regularly.

    Cost £16.50 This price does not include a tip as we feel tipping is a matter of personal preference.
