About Our Club

The Somerset Friendship Force, founded in 1997 is one 14 clubs in the UK and has 16 members.


As a club we visit clubs in other countries and stay for a week with the members in their homes and enjoy a programme of events organised by their club. Recently this has included Tallinn in Estonia, Riga-Latvia, Germany and Turkey. Similarly we entertain clubs from other countries with a programme of events in our local area. Members may home, day or dinner host the visiting club members. This often leads to long-lasting friendships, resulting in return visits.


We enjoy a varied social programme such as bee keeping & glass blowing, after which we go for a cheap and cheerful lunch. Our social organiser arranges trips to the theatre, picnics, cultural visits and joining local clubs in the South West for special events.
