The Helmdon Fellowship


The Fellowship came into being as a village group for retired people mainly through the efforts of such stalwarts as Harold Gulliver, supported by Jim Jessett, Connie Storer, Eric Humphrey, Nora Nichols and Harold and Jean Seckington (see full history).  It became affiliated to a county-organised association known as Old People's Welfare, but is now linked loosely to Age Concern, which is a national organisation, devoted to the assistance of old people.

The Helmdon Fellowship of Retired People changed its name in the mid-1990s to the Helmdon Fellowship, catering for those over sixty, whether retired or not.  The Fellowship's "get-togethers" are on every second Friday afternoon of the winter months. The Fellowship also runs fund-raising events, coffee mornings, afternoon tea parties and other events, to raise funds to support its members and subsidise coach outings.
