Newbold Women’s Group
Newbold Women’s Group is a social group that welcomes women from any faith (or none) for the purpose of friendship and stimulation. The meetings are held on the first Wednesday of the month at 7:00pm.
These include having a wide range of speakers for some of the meetings as well as outings, meals out, quizzes and holding fund raising events.
In December we hold a Carol Service in church, planned by members, which is followed by a Christmas Party in the Parish Room.
Each March we hold the Annual General Meeting when the committee are elected for the following year. At this meeting members are given details of the planned events for the coming year as well as voting for the charity to support for the next twelve months.
Any additional information can be given by emailing the Church or calling into Church on a Saturday morning.
NEWBOLD WOMEN’S GROUP DECEMBER 2019
On 4th December we held our Carol Service in church, with Ben kindly leading the prayers and Stuart playing the organ, again entertaining us with a lovely medley of Christmas music, so our thanks to both of them. Several members gave the readings, reminding us of what Christmas is actually about in the telling of the original story.
We then continued the evening in the Parish Room, with delicious refreshments, to which everyone had contributed. Mavis again provided the music and a quiz, the first part being to identify pantomime characters from just the consonants in their name, some proved quite tricky. The second part was to name people, places and things which all had a connection with Christmas in their name, again some were challenging, but added to the enjoyment of the evening.
There will not be a meeting in January, as New Year’s Day falls on a Wednesday, so the next meeting will be on Wednesday, 5th February 2020, when Steve Franks will give a presentation on Barcelona, with particular reference to La Sagrada Familia, the unfinished but spectacular cathedral.
