Ladies' Social Group

We have a social group for ladies where we meet together for fellowship as well as participating in fundraising activities.  In 2021, we held a delicious community cream tea in support of the girls at the Lufutuko Community School in Zambia to make sustainable sanitary products.  We also joined a Hospice online quiz, did a walk and pub lunch, enjoyed a competitive evening playing croquet and ended the year with a Christmas pot luck supper. Our last event was a garden social.  Our next event is on Thursday 25 August, from 6 pm - a Croquet evening. Yes, this popular event is back. Please contact Sandra on email sandra@knatchbulls.co.uk if you would like to join us and for more details - it was such fun last time!  Bring a drink/nibbles too.

Food Bank Support
