Oddfellows Society to hold Friendship Walk

A society of friends will head out on a walk in the latest of its series of regular events.

 The Cleveland and Durham branch of the Oddfellows Society will hold a circular six-mile Friendship Walk which will be held on Monday, September 21.

 It will be held from 10.30am and those interested in taking part should meet near the café at Cloughton, which is four miles north of Scarborough.

 The event is free and the Cleveland and Durham branch will arrange for a coach to take members to the event, if there is sufficient interest. Those who do come along should bring a packed lunch.

But that’s just the start of a busy period for the society, which regularly holds meetings in the Hartlepool area.

 The event is one in a series of forthcoming highlights for the society branch.

 The latest in its Food With Friends outings will be held on Wednesday, September 23.

 It will be held at the Duke of Wellington pub, which is in Darlington Road, in Durham. The get-together will start at noon.

 And on Tuesday, September 29, one of the group’s regular talks will be held in the Central Library which is in York Road in Hartlepool.

 People are being advised to meet for a 7pm start.

 Guest speaker will be Sunita Lee, who will talk about Indian weddings as well as other ceremonial customs.

 The cost of the event is £3 plus an optional raffle.
