Annual membership is £39 for 2017.

Latest Meeting

Another very enjoyable meeting was held on the 21st November. Sue Horsfall the president gave everyone a warm welcome. She reminded members that our annual Christmas meal will be held on 8th December at Alveston House, and the Carol service is on 14th December. We have a thriving supper club with the next one scheduled for 6th February. A darts team is being organised.

At our meeting this month we were introduced to Jill Butler, a line dance instructor, who managed to get even the most nervous member on the floor to have a go. She taught several dances and all the members agreed it was a very amusing and enjoyable evening.

We are a very friendly group and are always happy to welcome new members.

Our next meeting will be held on 12th December but we usually meet on the third Tuesday of every month at The Methodist Church Hall at 7.30 pm, so please come along, we would love to see you.
