New members welcome
We are currently around 20-25 ladies attending meetings. We warmly welcome new members, - not just wives but ladies of all ages or status - and sometimes men join in!
Our year 2016-7 began as usual with a ploughman’s supper in September. During the year we have enjoyed hearing a variety of speakers: Heather Clements from the Bible Society spoke and showed slides about her time in China, and Tim Winter, a local historian, told us about our own area’s traditional woodland crafts; Jim Saunders gave a superb musically-illustrated slide show about their trip to the Canyon lands of the USA. Some sessions were pure entertainment with a film evening, a quiz evening, and a cheery sing-along with Ellen-and-Friends. There was much hilarity when we once again played indoor “curling” in the upstairs hall,.
The programme included several trips out, such as to the theatre in Guildford, a dinner at the Wheatsheaf, and a visit to hear about behind the scenes at the local ice cream parlour. Our regular highlights were the annual carol-singing at Home Green, joining in the church Maundy Thursday supper, and our summer walk which ended of course with fish-and-chips.
The current year’s programme is in full swing. Just come along; even if you are on your own you will always quickly find good company. Meetings are advertised in the church magazine and on the notice-board.
