Raynes Park Afternoon Townwomen's Guild - February 2014

Our first meeting of the new year, on 16th January, featured a talk by Hilary Osborn on her career as a BBC reporter spanning some 40 years – mainly in radio but also in television – during which she met, and worked with, a number of well known stars. A vote of thanks was given by Eileen Brewer.   

January activities included lunch time jazz at the Rose Theatre Culture Café, enjoyed with a drink and snack by 6 members. 

A dozen members went to The Watchman, New Malden on 14th January and enjoyed the chance to ‘catch up’ over a good lunch.  

Two outings to Wimbledon Theatre took place in January.   A small group rounded off their Christmas with a visit to the pantomime – Aladdin - which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.  Then the following week seven members  went to the Old Time Music Hall – enjoing the opportunity to look back to a by-gone era, and sing along when they knew the words.   

In February, our monthly meeting will be on Thursday, 20th at 1.30 pm at St Saviour’s Church Hall when Sandra Morgan will be giving a talking entitled ‘Royal Garden Parties’. 

The lunch Club will be visiting ‘The George’ at Morden on Wednesday 5th February, and .the February visit will be to the London Museum to take in the special exhibition The Cheapside Hoard: London’s Lost Jewels on Tuesday, 11th  February. 

Looking forward to March we are organising a minibus outing to Petworth House and Park (National Trust) on Tuesday, 25th March, leaving Raynes Park Station at 10.30 am, total cost £26 including driver’s tip for non NT members or £14.80 fare only.  If you are interested in this trip, (or any other activity) please contact a member of the TWG for further details.
