Ladies group

The Group started out as ‘Young Wives’ at St Mark’s Church in 1966. Eventually we moved to the Community Centre and now have our meetings at 8pm in the Lower Hall on the 2nd Tuesday of each month (with the exception of August).

We have had many interesting and informative speakers over the years together with Social events plus a Summer Outing.

We try to appeal to all our members and here are some of the varied topics our speakers have covered in the past:-

Beekeeping & Honey

Growing Lavender

The Work of the Air Ambulance with the U.N. in Bosnia

Beer Tasting

Flower Arranging

Chocolate making

Elizabethan Costumes

Slide Shows

The History of the Workhouse in Sheffield

What the Butler Saw
