The Annual General Meeting of the Ladies Group was held on March 6 th preceded by an informal Eucharist service conducted by our Vicar Simon.
The business of the AGM was conducted by June Williams, as Chairman, and the Minutes of the last AGM were approved. The Chairman’s report was adopted, as was that of the Secretary and Treasurer. It was decided that the subscription would remain the same at £15.00 for the coming year, which was now due. June told us of the forthcoming programme which promises to be as interesting and thought-provoking as the last programme.
The officers and committee were re-elected en bloc. There being no further business the officers and committee were thanked for all the hard work they do.
The evening ended with a talk by Simon sharing some of his favourite poetry. He read poems by R.S. Thomas, Steve Turner and a poem Ballad of the Bread Man by Charles Causley which all gave room for thought. One of our members told us that she had been christened by R.S. Thomas.
The next meeting will be on Monday April 3 rd when we welcome Wendy Davies to speak to us about the history of ‘hats’.
The Ladies Group will be hosting the Lent Lunch on Wednesday 22 nd March at 12.45 p.m. in the Parish Centre. Thank you to all members who have agreed to help in any way.
We are always pleased to welcome new members to the group. If you would like further information please speak to Ann Sagar in Church or telephone 01691 657903 or visit the Church website which Anne Pilsbury kindly updates for us. http://www.stoswaldsoswestry.org.uk.
I am sure if transport is a problem one of our members will probably live near you in the town and be most willing to help.
