History of the Club
The Fernhurst Good Companions was originally called the 'Forget-me Nots', and was founded in 1951 for persons of 60 years of age and older from the parish of Fernhurst and surrounding areas. It was originally a subsidiary of the Red Cross and the first chairman was Mrs. Hollist. Thirty five members attended the first meeting, subscriptions at that time being one old penny (1d.) with a cup of tea costing three old pennies (3d.). The name was changed in 1972 and the subscriptions are now £6.00 per annum, but the tea is free! The Club celebrated its Golden Anniversary in 2001 with a large cake, balloons and a 'knees-up'.
For information about the Club and membership contact either the Secretary Mrs. Sue Hodge on 01428 653059 or the Treasurer Mrs Val Newman on 01428 648979. Membership costs just £6.00 for an annual subscription.
