Whissendine’s Happy Circle group meets monthly over lunch and talks. The Happy Circle welcomes anyone over the age of fifty to be a member. The annual subscription is only £5. The club meets in the village hall on the first Wednesday of each month, except January. Lunch is served at 1.15pm consisting of soup and a pudding in winter at £3 and a salad and pudding in Summer at a cost of £4. In July the meeting begins at 2.30pm as it is a Strawberry Tea. After a short business meeting there will be a speaker or other activity concluding at approximately 3.15pm.
There are about 40 members at the present time, and the group would be delighted to hear of anyone wishing to join.
