There are many local events to enjoy each year, including social occasions not available to the general public, such as musical events, garden visits and study days (or church visits) led by social historian, Dr Christopher Starr. We arrange bridge drives and cookery and flower arranging demonstrations from time to time as well.

If you can’t join us for an event you can donate to us on our JustGiving page:
