Weston Village Townswomen’s Guild

Programme | News | Guild Activity Groups

Weston Village Townswomen’s Guild (WVTG) meets on the third Wednesday of each month at the Moravian Church Hall at 7.45pm, and is always keen to welcome new members of all ages.

The Guild offers a variety of activities and outings and new members would be invited to join in pursuits such as drama, choir, gardening, needlework, craft, bridge, scrabble, local history, topical discussion and walking.

Subscription is currently £28 and is payable annually in March (or on joining). Anyone interested in membership is invited to attend a Guild meeting, initially as a guest. This then gives the individual the opportunity to gain an insight into group activities and therefore helps in making a decision on enrolment.

Townswomen are encouraged to share ideas and views, develop new skills, challenge issues of importance, support each other and HAVE FUN!

More information may be obtained from the Secretary – Di Gill, Tel 01225 313461, or the Chairman – Sue Greedy, Tel 01225 400968.
