September's the month to make new friends

14th, September, 2017

If your social life’s in need of a shake-up, or you’re ready to start adding some extra names to your contacts book, then the Oddfellows in Stafford has declared September a great time to take action and make new friends.


As part of its annual Friendship Month campaign, in September the local Society will be hosting special events for people to come together locally, have fun and try something new.


Janet Lewis District Secretary for the Mid-Staffs branch, said:


“Our Friendship Month campaign is in its eighth year now. It’s our way of reminding people just how important it is to have the support of friends around you. They really do make the good times better and the hard times easier. Friendships often start as a result of sharing a fun experience or by learning something together and our events provide that opportunity in a really easy, relaxed way.”


The Oddfellows Friendship Month events are open to everyone and include:


• Cream Tea Café Links, coffee morning, various stalls, prizes to be won.


27th September, Oddfellows Hall, Greengate St, Stafford, 10am – 1pm – Free event.


“We can’t wait to welcome new faces at our coffee morning, as we know there’s nothing quite like sharing laughs and a brew in good company,” added Janet.


The Society’s members regularly get together to enjoy social events such as talks, trips out, lunches, coffee mornings and evening get-togethers.


The Oddfellows is also offering a chance to win a National Trust day out and cream tea for two adults and up to three children, plus £100 spending money in a free prize draw during September. To enter and for full terms and conditions visit
