Old Codgers 1St Saviour’s runs a special and slightly embarrassing group called The Old Codgers.  The official title is the Senior Men’s Group, an offshoot of our Men's Group, but this seemed a little tame.  So we came up with a good Yorkshire title.  According to the Cambridge Dictionary, an old codger is “an old man, especially one who is strange or humorous in some way”.  This seems to be a very accurate description of all the men who turned out for the first meeting, and they are proud of it!  If you want a slightly more spiritual mission statement, well it’s “grumpy old men having fun and seeking grace”.
 
The group meets on the first Tuesday of the month at the Old Harrow in Grenoside.  Lunch is only £2.50 for one course, or £4 for two courses.  Drinks etc are extra.  The group are all men associated in some way with St Saviour’s Church who are retired or available in the day time.  Additionally, we have now been joined by similer retired men from our link church, St Mark's Grensodie – well they are the home team!  All are welcome.
 
Finally, we should just point out that the Vicar is normally in attendance to ensure good behaviour.  Of course, he is far too young to actually be a member…
