Oddfellows can help if you feel lonely

WE have all felt lonely at some point in life. For some, it’s a temporary feeling that we overcome but for others it lingers and can seriously dent your confidence as well as leave you feeling cut off.

If any readers are struggling with loneliness, we want to let you know that we are here.

We’re a local membership organisation that’s made up of people from all walks of life and ages.

We know all too well how many major life events, such as a relationship breakdown, bereavement, redundancy, retirement, declining health or being a carer can often lead to a sudden change in circumstances and prove difficult to adjust to.

So please, don’t feel that you’re alone. We run regular inexpensive events in and around the Henley area for people to come along and enjoy some great company.

They’re nothing formal, just simple opportunities for local folk to come together, have a few laughs and, we hope, forge new friendships along the way.

We’re a really friendly bunch and would love to welcome you to one of our get-togethers.

Coming up we have our regular singing group, gentle exercise group, art group, monthly get-togethers plus much, much more.

If you’d like to come along, or you’d like to find out what else we have coming up, just give me, Debbie Jex, a call on 0118 957 3354 or email me at
