Men's Activities


We’re a friendly bunch of men from Saffron Walden and its surrounding villages.  We welcome newcomers to our pub lunches and occasional suppers. Dates and time a shown in our weekly Grapevine newsletter.

'Oasis' - Men's Monthly Lunches

On the 1st Wednesday of each month  between 6 and 12 of us meet at 12.00pm in the Old English Gentleman pub in Gold Street Saffron Walden. Over an hour or so we enjoy a pub lunch, a drink and each other’s company. It’s simple, totally informal, no agenda, no strings and no tab but let Bill know by the Tuesday before so that he can book tables - Bill Rose (tel: 516609. email: A reminder is usually posted in our Grapevine newsletter the Sunday before.


For our three suppers a year around ten men meet in a local restaurant (7 for 7.30pm) for supper.  Each supper is on a different day of the week and we’ve previously visited traditional pubs and Chinese and Indian restaurants. About a month before a supper we publicise it and ask people to sign up via a sheet at the back of St. Mary’s church or by phone or email.  That way we book enough places at the restaurant and co-ordinate lifts to and from out-of-town venues.
