Monthly meetings held in the Village Hall on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 2.30 pm. No meeting in August

We are a happy and cheerful group who meet once a month to listen to a varied programme of speakers. Our members also enjoy our own craft and produce show, organize outings and hold classes in many topics from computing to card making.

Every year we hold a party for members and friends. 2003 was a special year as it was our 75th birthday.

Our members also like to support a charity each year. This year they raised £1000 for the local charity, ‘Talking Newspapers’.
