Odd way to a better life

Oddfellows 5-steps-to-greater-happiness-in-later-life

If your social life’s in need of a shake-up, or you’re ready to start adding some extra names to your contacts book, then the Oddfellows in Buckingham has declared September a great time to take action and make new friends.
As part of its annual Friendship Month campaign, throughout September the local society will be hosting special events for people to come together locally, have fun and try something new.

Marilyn Saunders, Development Officer for the Beds & Bucks District of the Oddfellows, said: “Our Friendship Month campaign is in its eighth year now. It’s our way of reminding people just how important it is to have the
support of friends around you. They really do make the good times better and the hard times easier. Friendships often start as a result of sharing a fun experience or by learning something together and our events provide that
opportunity in a really easy, relaxed way.”

The Oddfellows’ Friendship Month events are open to everyone and include:

• Visit to Stowe Landscape Gardens – Heritage Open Day – Saturday 9th September. Free entry to gardens and house.

“We can’t wait to welcome new faces at our visit to Stowe,” added Marilyn.

The society’s members regularly get together to enjoy social events such as talks, trips out, lunches, coffee mornings and evening get-togethers.

The Oddfellows is also offering a chance to win a National Trust day out and cream tea for two adults and up to three children, plus £100 spending money in a free prize draw during September. To enter and for full terms and
