The Village Hall was full for our March meeting which was due in part to the attendance of more new members and visitors and we look forward to even more in the future. We have a team for the forthcoming GFWI Quiz so they must get their brains into gear for that, our monthly Coffee […]

The evening was hot and the roads were empty, (something to do with football perhaps) when our July meeting began with the singing of Jerusalem followed by the usual business. The recent walk on Cleeve Hill and outing to Trioscope had been enjoyed by those who went and hopefully our August outing to Westonbirt will […]
