Braughing Get Together — a new look

The Braughing Society was formed 50 years ago to ensure that Braughing was protected from inappropriate housing development and to provide a monthly social get-together. In recent years, membership has been in terminal decline and so something had to change – and here it is! 

The focus group has come up with the name ‘Braughing Get Together’ – a newly-launched social club for everyone in Braughing, and surrounding villages, meeting once a month usually on a Friday evening. A varied programme of activities and events is planned, such as a Beetle Drive, a light-hearted wine tasting, a not-very-serious quiz, theatre trips, a walking scavenger hunt around Braughing, coach outings, movie nights, games evenings, and a lot more, not forgetting occasional talks by entertaining and amusing speakers. Please give us your thoughts and ideas. 

Unlike the former Braughing Society, there is no membership, but a pay-at-the-door system. The entry fee will be a minimum of £2.50 per person, but on occasions it will have to be more depending on the cost of providing the evening’s entertainment. There will be a bar, serving red and white wine plus tea, coffee and soft drinks throughout the evening. Bring your own nibbles and bring your friends.
