We are very pleased that you've found us and we hope to offer all our members the opportunity to make new friends, and learn and experience different skills and activities.

Our committee and sub groups put together exciting annual programmes of events which promise to include a variety of activities: walks, bike rides, bakes, books, crafts, and inspirational speakers.

Fundraising, Campaigns and Thank you's...
Each year we choose a local charity to support. In January 2020 River Holme Connections was voted in as our charity of the year. We have extended our support to run throughout 2021 as fundraising opportunities proved so limited In the difficult year of 2020. To learn more about the great work they do – whilst adhering to COVID safe guidelines – take a look at their facebook page and website (which also has some good ideas for getting children interested in their local environment).
