Who are Welford Wives ?
A village-based group set up over 50 years ago by local residents, some of whom are still members. Apparently it was called Young Wives in those days and we still like to think of ourselves as having a young outlook.
We have no affiliations to national organisations so we can choose exactly what we want to do and this also means our annual membership fee is kept to a minimum
We meet up on the first Wednesday of every month in the evening for a pre-arranged talk, visit or activity followed by coffee/tea.
We have speakers on a wide range of topics chosen by members and have arranged guided tours around local villages which result in refreshments at the local public house.
We treat ourselves to a meal in a local restaurant at Christmas, plus a barbecue in the summer where we invite husbands to do the cooking and also have an annual skittles competition at the Bowls Club.
Although not a specifically fund-raising organisation we like to make a donation to local or national charities most years, and past donations have included the Shakespeare Hospice, the Air Ambulance, and Save the Children.
We currently have about 30 members on our list but would love to welcome some new members and are very open to new ideas for events and activities.
For our next meetings – Wednesday September 7th, we are in the Memorial Hall for Basic Life Support training. On Wednesday 5th October we are again in the Memorial hall having a talk by the Severn Free Wheelers local blood delivery service run by motorcycle volunteers. Everyone is welcome on both occasions.
So if you are thinking you would like to join us or have any questions, please do get in touch with either Sue Hook on 751400 or Christine Cooper on 750667.
