HAVE FUN!


We do a lot of fundraising and do tremendous work in the community making peoples' lives better, at home and internationally. But perhaps most importantly, WE HAVE FUN while we are doing it.

About us

Yelverton is almost at the centre of the rural area we cover, which includes the villages of Bere Alston, Bere Ferrers, Buckland Monachorum, Crapstone, Dousland, Hexworthy, Horrabridge, Meavy, Milton Combe, Postbridge, Princetown, Sheepstor, Walkhampton, Yelverton and all the interspersed smaller hamlets.  We also have members from Tavistock and Mary Tavy.
Statistically we are about two thirds men and one third ladies, with ages spanning over four decades and from a wide range of professions, businesses and organisations. We all share a common interest in helping others while having fun. 
We meet on Wednesday evenings to enjoy each other’s company and to plan our future event and charitable donations.  About once per month we have external speakers to talk about topics of interest.  On the fifth Wednesday of any month we usually have an away day, which could be one of a range of activities.
We meet in the bar between 1900 - 1930 at the Moorland Gardens Hotel and move through to a private room for a one course table d’hôtel meal followed by tea and coffee.  The drinks and meal are entirely optional and some members just come along for the discussions afterwards.   It’s the evening so we like to keep things fairly relaxed and informal, but we are very effective at what we do.  There is a business meeting once per month when we do a roundup of all ongoing and planned activities, but current issues can be discussed at any meeting.  Guests and prospective members are always welcome.
We run or are involved in a wide range of activities and events in the local community.  Have a look around our website.
