Ladies Group


The Ladies Group met on the 4th October to plan ahead after such a long time. Twenty-four ladies braved torrential showers and sunshine to meet in the Parish Centre and it was clear from the chatter that everyone felt good to be back together again.

Prior to the general meeting Chris Abram spoke about organising a Pop-Up Charity Christmas card stall and asked for volunteers. This is a new venture and Chris is organising local and national charities so that their Christmas goods can have a place at St Oswald’s. This will be from Saturday, 30th October to Saturday, 11th December.

Then the discussion about the future started! Should we meet in the afternoon or return to an evening? It was decided that we would meet at 2.30 in the afternoon in the Parish Centre on the first Monday of the month until March when we hold our Annual General Meeting and a formal decision can be taken. So, the next meeting will be Monday, 1st November at 2.30 pm with a general get together over a cup of tea.

It was also decided to have a Christmas meal which will be at The Wynnstay on Monday 6th December 12 p.m. for 12.30 p.m.

At our meeting in November Glenda and June will circulate menus for completion and as we have to pay the full amount when booking the meals please bring the full cost to the meeting - two courses £20 and three courses £25. If paying by cheque please make payable to St. Oswald’s Ladies Group. Coffee is extra and If you would like coffee after your meal this will have to be ordered and paid for separately after the meal at the table.

It was so good to see everyone.
