Friendship Club

We have found that Saturdays can be the loneliest day of the week for many local people who are over 60 and whose families have grown up and left home, or who are suffering bereavement and loss.

This is why our Friendship Club meets generally on the second Saturday of each month, from 2.30 pm until 4.30 pm, at Dorridge Methodist Church.

The Friendship Club gives people an opportunity to talk, make new friendships and share memories and laughter about old times.

Everything we do is underlined by our commitment to the Christian values of caring for, and being interested in, those around us.

Our members really matter to us; we always send a card if someone is ill, or arrange a visit, and it is really encouraging to see friendships develop.

We normally have a different guest speaker every month and organise occasional          mid-week coffee mornings which are particularly useful if you are new to the area.

We make a point of picking everyone up from Dorridge and Bentley Heath so all of our members can attend the meetings, and we have 15 drivers who collect between 50 and 70 people each month.

Tea is very important at every event, so we always have sandwiches and cake, and our entrance fee is £3.
