In November 2015 a Friendship Club for the elderly and retired was set up in the village. The Friendship Club meets every other Thursday at the Cricketers Pub, Fordham Heath. It costs £2.50 and everyone is welcome. The meetings start at 11am and finish at 3pm.

Throughout the day there is tea & coffee provided along with a hot meal at lunchtime.

It’s a place to come and have a chat, make new friends, there’s usually a quiz, there’s a selection of board games and more than enough willing players, there are speakers planned throughout the year and along with a range of activities and trips in the planning.
