Awliscombe Young Wives Group

Young Wives is a very informal group of ladies.  Some of us are not young, and not all are wives, so there are no restrictions on joining!.

We meet at the beginning of the year in January to sort out the itinerary for the rest of the year.  At this meeting suggestions are made for ideas or events to be held monthly throughout the year.  Individual members volunteer to arrange one of the events, they go  away from that meeting and set up their date and organise the event.  All  this information is then collated and a calendar of events is produced.

It is then up to the organiser to remind everyone else what the next event will be (usually by e mail) and members that want to participate have to phone the organiser and book themselves in .  It all works without much fuss and everyone does there little bit. Because the events are organised by different people all the time, there is no set day each month, however most events do actually happen on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evening.

 There is a small (£5) annual fee (which covers speaker fees etc).  If you are interested in joining please telephone Sally Lawrence on 01404 42825 or 07944 112 547

Provisionally these are the events that are organised for 2022.
