The club aims to give everyone a place to come and meet new friends, have a chat and some refreshments. We meet at the Stradbroke Community Centre on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month, from 2pm to 4pm. The meetings always vary, with games – bingo, beetle, and hoy, we also have entertainers a few times during the year, all enjoyed of course with a cup of tea and biscuits.
We have about 30 members, most of whom attend all the meetings and whilst the majority of our members are ladies, we also have some gentlemen who join us. Although we are a Stradbroke club we are always pleased to welcome new members from other villages in the area and we’re not very strict about our ‘Over 60s’ age group.
We do make a small charge for each session to cover our costs but, once someone has been a member for six months, all our outings are free. Funds for the club are raised from raffles, auctions, and we also have a coffee morning/table top sale in October. Our members also enjoy a Christmas lunch in early December, with raffle and presents, plus entertainment.
We also have at least five outings during the year to various places of interest, to the coast, gardens and shopping to name but a few. Last year these included:
Fakenham Garden Centre,
Steam Train from Holt to Sheringham
Saffron Walden & Linton Zoo,
Bury St Edmunds.
