The friendship month campaign is now in its seventh year.

Denise Turner, Oddfellows branch secretary, said: “Our annual friendship month campaign is 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, so our events hope to provide that opportunity in a really easy, relaxed way.

“We can’t wait to put the kettle on for you at our events as we know there’s nothing quite like sharing a brew in good company.”
