West St Leonards Townswomen’s Guild

The lovely summer has helped make our varied programme even more enjoyable.

We have recently held a strawberry tea, a fish and chip supper followed by Crazy Golf and a barbecue. Also a mystery coach trip rounded off by supper at a country pub and a cruise down the river Medway with a fish and chip lunch.

I think the message here is our guild members like fish and chips.

In June a number of us travelled to Cardiff to the Townswomen’s AGM which also included a short holiday.

Our recent speakers have included John Wilton telling us about his Donald McGill postcard collection, John Schofield demonstrating some wonderful magic especially when one of our members had her finger cut in two but we are glad to say all was quickly restored.

At our last meeting Sian Trevellion talked to us about the local authoress Catherine Cookson which enlightened us on her prolific writing, her rags to riches story and how generous she had been to many charities in her lifetime.

We are now looking forward to our speaker on September 10 who will be Jackie Maesh Hobbs telling us about Brighton Pavilion.

Our theatre trips continue to flourish as do our walks, supper club and various other activities. In September we are taking a trip to the Albert Hall which should be very interesting. We are always pleased to welcome new members and visitors to our friendly group which meets every second Wednesday of the month (except January) at the Arthur Easton Centre, or give Jackie a ring on 01424 439554 for more information.
