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, surrounding villages and hamlets, 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.
There is no membership, but a pay-at-the-door system. The entry fee will be a minimum of £4.00 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, beer, soft drinks, tea and coffee throughout the evening. Bring your own nibbles and bring your friends.
