Our Fit and Friendly Walks 

Each month we organise a "Fit and Friendly" walk. This is a joint venture with our Rotary Club. We meet at a member's home and walk for approximately an hour (the "Fit" part) and then return for the "Friendly" part, coffee and a chat joined by non-walkers. 

The 'fit' part of our Fit and Friendly monthly walks with our Rotary partners.

Tea parties

During lockdown we started having tea parties with 6 people in a member's garden.  This proved so popular that is has now become a permanent part of our diary.

Walking Holiday

Every year we go on a walking holiday in May with our Rotary partners, with plenty of walking, eating, socialising and enjoying spectacular views.  This year we went to the Jurassic coast in Dorset and enjoyed a bit of messing about on the river and sandcastle building on the beach for relaxation.

Knit and Natter

Our monthly knit and natter meetings produce blankets that are given to a number of local care homes, and baby clothes and blankets that go to Baby Basics, a charity which provides essentials for mums of newborns who are refugees or fleeing domestic violence.  This year a number of members helped with a little Piggies Market which also provided baby clothes, toys and Moses baskets.

Every Christmas we join with our Rotary partners to collect money for The Hospice in the Weald at the Tree of Light in the Pantiles.
