I think the club is very welcoming and has some very interesting activities which I would never have done on my own. In particular, the trips out have been excellent and fantastically cheap. When we all pull together we can achieve so much more.
Cheers to Jenny for founding the group.
I was impressed by the variety and regularity of the activities organised, I was rung to see how I was getting on and this was no small part of getting me back into a more social and happy way of life. Perhaps the best feature of the club was its reliability, some thing on every week, no cancellations.

We would like to congratulate you on creating such a successful friendship group, you have done a fantastic job. There is not any pressure put on anyone to join in, but it is left to members to decide if they want to participate in the various activities organised for the group. We have always found it to be a friendly and relaxing environment in which to meet and enjoy each others company.
I was fortunate to find this group in Sept 2009. As an 80 year old widow, of only a few months, without a car, and at a loss as to how the rest of my life was to develop. The warm relaxed and almost family nature of the group has been therapeutic and I have attended nearly every week. I have felt a general sense of relaxed and undemanding friendship in the group which has fostered members participation in events and fundraising. The great variety of subjects, outings and activities arranged by the secretary, must have been a boon to others, who like me, are living alone but still need to feel part of the community.
Since moving to Worcester and joining the group, I have been very happy and have made good friends. I enjoy getting out and about, and even just sitting to talk to everyone
Having joined the Friendship Group I arrived at the Pumphouse to listen to a talk on the Chateau Impney, by Mr John Hodges who is a local historian. I found the members of the group very friendly. At a later date the club visited the Chateau and had an update on the history and also the reason why it was built.
I have enjoyed every week I have attended and have loved all of the outings you have organised, gaining knowledge and companionship, and having lots of fun
