Trunch Friends

Trunch Friends meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 2pm in Trunch Village Hall.

We hold eleven meetings a year (there is no meeting in August). We aim to provide an interesting and varied programme with entertaining and inspiring speakers, arts and crafts, quizzes, games, raffles, popular seasonal events such as our strawberry cream tea and Christmas party, and an occasional outing. We encourage members and non-members to suggest items for us to include in future programmes.

There is always time at every meeting for refreshments, catching up with old friends, and making new friends.

• It costs just £15 for annual membership. The membership year runs from January to December. Everyone is welcome, whether you live in Trunch, or not.

• Non-members are welcome to attend any meeting at a nominal charge of £2.

There is no need to pre-book to attend our meetings in the hall. Please just turn up and you will be made very welcome!
