Out With Friends Group

 

Aims and Objectives

Objectives of the Group are for people on their own who want to socialise for a variety of reasons.  Out with Friends aims to enable members to meet others with similar interests to arrange outings and events in small or larger groups.  At the meetings members put forward ideas for activities of various kinds.

Group Leader:  Pat Woodward   Tel:  01844 290460     pat.woodward041@btinternet.com

Venue:  Bradmoor Farm, Stanbridge Road – (in private area)

Time:  First Wednesday of the month @ 10.30 am 

If you are intending to attend for the first time, please notify Pat Woodward (as above) in advance.

What we do

This friendly Group is essentially self maintaining in that members bring their written suggestions with details of venue & event(s), costs etc., to the meetings and, assisted by the Group Leader are encouraged to organise/arrange as necessary.  These can be anything from a lunch, a local event, Theatre, cinema – local and national, open gardens and Stately Homes, days out with local Coach Companies, sporting activities, even a ‘friends’ meeting or meal in members own homes, or just meeting up for a coffee – the possibilities are limitless.

Details of all outings and who is responsible for their organising are minuted at every  monthly meeting and distributed to all members as soon as possible. This to enable members to contact the relevant organiser of each event.

 

Costs 

It has been agreed that, from Jan 2018, members should pay annual  subs of £10 to cover expenses. Pat should be reimbursed for the costs she incurs to set up outings, meals and general outgoings to run the group. This will also cover things like raffle prizes and special thank you gifts. 

We have agreed that, where there is car sharing, fuel contributions should by made at the following rates

  • £1 up to 5 miles
  • £2 up to 25 miles
  • £3 over 25 miles
