South-East Northumberland Friendship Centre

About Us

A long-standing social group for the over-50s, providing a low cost opportunity to socialise and make new friends. Current membership numbers around 60, with an average of 45-50 attending our monthly meetings. New members are always welcome: no need to pre-book, just come along to one of our meetings as a visitor to see if ours is an organisation you would like to join. The Membership fee is currently £6 pa, with a small charge of £2 per meeting to include tea/coffee and biscuits.

Monthly Meetings

We meet on the first Wednesday of each month from 1.30 to approx 3.30 p.m. at Cramlington Village Community Centre, East FarmTerrace, Cramlington, NE23 1DT.

Meetings comprise a talk from a guest speaker or light entertainment, a review of business and forthcoming events, with a break for tea/coffee and an opportunity to interact with other members.

Our Other Activities

  • We hold a couple of relaxed social evenings during the year: usually dominoes, bingo, or a beetle drive, with a fish and chip supper.

  • Pub lunches are held monthly at local pubs / restaurants.

  • Occasional coach day trips are arranged and, if there is member demand, a short 3 or 4 day (UK) break to a place of significant interest.
