      Activities for 2019


Members regularly have outings to the theatre, shopping trips and organised tours of London and other landmarks. They often have fund-raising events, which all can enjoy. This year their ever-popular Plant and Cake sale is schduled for Saturday 11 May 2019 in the Egerton Sports Pavilion.

During the year we attend one-day schools in gardening, crafts and painting.  A group of members meet twice a month to play table tennis.
