We formed in 2008 and have had seven good years so far. We meet at 10.30am on the first Wednesday of the month in the Parlour of the Tayne Centre (Lyminge Methodist Church)
Our core membership is around and we have a varied programme of talks and demonstrations as you can see from the programme of events below. We have become well known in the local eateries and always have a good turnout on our Group Lunches. We have also established a tradition of celebrating New Year’s Eve and Easter Monday with lunch. It’s a tough life but someone’s gotta do it!
We’ve had lots of outings and there are more are in the pipeline. Since we began in 2008 we have been to Walmer Castle, Sandwich, Broadstairs and Rye, both theatres in Folkestone and shopping in De Bradlei Wharf, Bybrook Barn, Westwood Cross and the Newnham Court Shopping Village, We have toured round the Chartham Paper Mill and Biddenden Vineyard, enjoyed a Bakery Workshop in Jempsons of Peasmarsh and Poinsettia Walks in Staple Farm as well as lunch dates in various places – have a look at the photos below and you will see we know how to enjoy ourselves.
We hope we are successful in our aim of promoting friendships and believe we have a lot to offer so, if we have tempted you, please come along and give us a try. At present there are no membership or joining fees and you only pay when you come along at £2.00 (From Jan 2013).
If you would like any further information, pop in to one of our meetings – you will be made most welcome. Alternatively, email firstname.lastname@example.org
