Navenby Friendship Club has been going for just over 50 years. Until 18 months ago it was known as Navenby Darby and Joan Club., but the members decided they would like a more modern name.
The club meets on alternate Thursday afternoons between February and December from 2.30 p.m. to 4.30 p.m. in the Methodist Church Hall. The members play cards, dominos, triominos and scrabble. At their request we have the occasional prize bingo and beetle drive.
We have a team of 12 volunteer hostesses who provide a wonderful array of sandwiches, cakes and pastries for their afternoon tea. We are affiliated to Age Concern and WRVS who give support or advice when we need it. Membership is currently a £2.00 per year, £1.50 per meeting for tea and then we have a small raffle. We have four outings per year beginning in May and going through to October. We also organise a couple of Coffee Mornings each year to help pay for these outings (coach fare for members is free). These outings are open to other people once members have had their chance. We are also very grateful to the Towns Farm Trust who give us a donation towards outings each year. We finish our year with Christmas Dinner but have a break from December to February to re-charge our batteries and try to avoid the winter weather.
If anyone would like to come and have a taster session you will be made most welcome, age is no barrier. For further details

You may be interested in a service which is saving lives in Lincolnshire. Lincolnshire Integrated Voluntary Emergency Service (LIVES) is a charity providing a rapid response to 999 medical emergencies, particularly in rural areas. LIVES responders are trained to deliver early basic life support and early defibrillation. They also provide patient assessment, oxygen therapy and general patient care, recording patient details which can be passed to the attending ambulance crew.
In 2008 LIVES members have attended over 13000 calls, 153 of which were cardiac arrests – with 23 of those surviving. In towns and villages where there is a First Responder group, the chance of survival following cardiac arrest has increased to 35 per cent. LIVES needs your help - as a first responder, as a LIVES medic if you are a doctor, nurse, paramedic or technician, or by helping us raise funds.Find out more

is a group of local enthusiasts studying the history and archaeology of Navenby and district. The group holds regular members meetings usually on the third Tuesday of each month in the Methodist Hall. Public meetings with invited speakers are held from time to time through the year.
Membership dues are charged mainly to cover the cost of renting meeting halls. In 2005, the group received a grant of £24,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to conduct a survey of the land to the East of High Dyke (Ermine Street) where no previous surveys have been made. The Project conducted Field Walking and Geophysical Surveying with a particular interest to uncover more of the history of Roman occupation in Navenby. In 2013 NAG received a further grant of £54,000 from HLF to carry out excavation of one important site.
Details of the group’s meetings, studies and events can be found on the NAG Website

We are a friendly group with a current membership of about 40. We meet every Thursday, 10am to 1pm, in the Church Hall, for informal painting sessions for which we currently charge £1.50. Although no formal tuition is given, help is at hand if needed. Throughout the year we enjoy the occasional talk or presentation by members or visitors and once each year we hire a coach to visit some distant gallery.
New members are always welcome but you do need to be resident in Navenby to qualify for membership of the group.
