Getting behind a Leicestershire initiative

Getting behind a Leicestershire initiative

Leicestershire folk are rightly proud of their Triumph Motorcycle factory and now our wee sidecar-hearse mini-factory has become a source of enthusiasm and pride too, so rather than take a box of Now Open Sundays! to the 050 Friendship Group in Braunston, I took the unusual step of visiting with one of our motorbike and sidecar hearses. The fact I’d just about run out of books had nothing to do with it whatsoever. Honest!

050 Friendship Group Leicestershire

Barbara the chairperson, Paul and Jean who organised Paul’s invitation

Barbara, the chairperson, made it clear to me that the 050 Friendship Group like a good laugh, so I decided to test out a few fresh gags. Barbara used to be a minister herself and is a real live wire, as indeed the majority were. The 050 Friendship Group are an active bunch over over fifties. At first I was conscious of the ‘050’ as I’m not far off that myself now, but within minutes it became obvious the real emphasis was on the ‘friendship’ and it was a real kick to speak to a good sized group who not only enjoy what you have to say, but are actually quite proud to be geographically associated with what we do!

The door is always open.

The door is always open to the over fifties!
