Fritchley & District OAP

We would like to extend an invitation to anyone who would like to join our association.

Our meetings are on the first Tuesday of the month, February to December, at 7:15 p.m. in the Congregational Hall at Fritchley.

Everyone is most welcome. Entertainment is provided most months – along with a welcome cup of tea, biscuits and raffle.

During the summer months we have day trips to the seaside and places of interest. These outings are highly subsidised by the club.

There are no age restrictions and we have members from a wide area such as Crich, Fritchley, Ambergate and Wirksworth.

If you are interested just come along as a guest and enjoy an evening with us, you will be made most welcome.

If you need any more information please ring Janet on (01773) 856089.

Fritchley Village Hall

The helpful heroes - Crich Standard Article - December 2019

At the Fritchley OAP meetings, we have a group of very friendly helpers on our committee who are always willing to help.

We have Elizabeth, who keeps our minutes up to date and organises our entertainment. Rosemary deals with finances. Maureen is very willing to help wherever needed. Angela sees that everyone receives a birthday card. Sandra and Betty deal with raffles, and Judy is on refreshments. All these positions take a lot of time, given willingly.

I am the chair of the group, taking the meetings, organising our days out (we have had five trips this year), booking dinners out, Pie & Pea evenings and parties within the group.

Our members also help in many ways and without these volunteers the OAP group would not exist. We meet at Fritchley C of E School on the first Tuesday of the month at 7pm.

Everyone is most welcome. For more information, call Janet on 01773 856089.
