We are a friendly group of around 30-40 ladies of all ages who meet on the second Tuesday of the month in the Village Hall. We are an active group, enjoying a speaker at most meetings. There are also additional craft and gardening groups.
If you are new to the village or your circumstances have changed, do consider coming along to a meeting.
For friendship, education, fun, stimulation and a chance to be yourself for the evening.
Take a look at our programme for this year – hopefully there’s something to interest everyone. Do come along and see what’s on offer !
