We meet on the first Thursday in the month, in the Village Hall at 7.45pm, and we are always happy to welcome new members, or visitors.

 We are a friendly group and enjoy a wide variety of activities which include:- 

• 2 flourishing Book Groups where we read a wide variety of books including the classics, biographies as well as more contemporary literature.

• We are also knitting and crocheting garments for 'Hope and Aid Direct' and these items have recently been sent to Kosovo.
