Onny Valley Social Club

The Onny Valley Social Club (affectionately known locally as the Over 50s) was formed in 1996 to provide the opportunity for those aged over 50 to meet and socialise, take part in activities, and go on trips outside the immediate area together. The club is very well supported with members ranging from their 50s to 80s and above, and the wide range of backgrounds and interests is reflected in the variety of talks, activities and trips each year. Membership is only £10 per annum, and non-members are very welcome to join the trips, the cost of which depends on the numbers booking to go.

The club meets in The Village Hall at Norbury on the first Tuesday of each month at 2.00 pm (unless there is a scheduled trip on that day) with an additional fee of 50p for refreshments (tea, coffee and biscuits). We also hold a raffle at meetings (£1 per ticket) to help cover the cost of the hall hire. All members are invited to bring a prize with them.

If you would like more details about our 2022 programme of activities and day trips (see below), please contact Edna Jones on 01588 6301630 or via her facebook page.

Note: Coaches pick up at Bowling Green Close, Bishop’s Castle and Lydham Village Hall. When booking coach places for the trips, we would like payment at the time of booking please.
