Monthly Meetings
Please note the Christmas Meeting will take place on 7th December in the Main Hall at the Girls School. There will be games, quizzes and a visit by the Phoenix Morris dancers who both demonstrate their lively and fun dances and maybe get some of us to join in. Entrance will be £5 per person which will include ALL food and drink and the entertainment, but there will be a raffle for a local charity at extra cost.
