Although the Fernhurst Good Companions is not a registered Charity it is run by a committee of 11 volunteers, all being members of the Club. Currently the Club has about 75 members, both men and women. It meets twice monthly on the second and fourth Wednesdays (excepting for August when there are no meetings), in the Fernhurst Village Hall at 2.30pm and the programme each year usually consists of talks on various subjects by outside speakers, travel talks, quizes, art/craft and card making sessions, information on topics relevant to the members such as home safety and security, medical/health issues with ploughman's lunches or home-made teas with the Haslemere Stroke Club. Mystery coach outings are arranged, some allowing members to paddle in the sea, and some are to local gardens where if they wish members can sit and relax under the apple trees or, for the more energetic, to flex their muscles and enjoy a game of croquet. Every year a slap-up Christmas Lunch is organised, complete with entertainment. The Club also has a bookstall and holds regular raffles which, with occasional grants from West Sussex County Council helps maintain the Clubs finances.

Over 50 people came to our Ploughman's Lunch in October and were treated to a meal of homemade soup, cheese, ham, pickle, cole slaw, breads, tea or coffee and a glass of wine. We will be holding another in February 2015 and everyone is welcome.
