Raynes Park Afternoon Townwomen's Guild - March 2014

200Despite the rain and wind members of the Guild have enjoyed their activities in late January/early February.  Invited by Cllr Gilli Lewis Lavender, a small group were pleased to join the Holy Cross Mothers Union to enjoy a showing of the interesting video made to document the Queen’s visit to Mitcham.  The Lunch Club ventured through the rain for another relaxed meal and chat at The George, Morden, and the Visits Group made their way to the Museum of London to view London’s Lost Jewels – The Cheapside Hoard.  Armed with a provided magnifying glass, members took their time looking in detail at the exhibits, marvelling at the workmanship, and then examining the portraits of the period (late 16th early 17th century) showing examples of the jewellery being worn.   Finally arriving at the café for a drink and late lunch, it was agreed this was a most enjoyable and worthwhile exhibition. 

The March programme includes both more formal and social occasions.  Our Annual General Meeting and Bring & Buy is on Thursday, 20th March at 1.30 pm at St Saviours Church Hall.   If you are interested in joining the Guild or would just like to find out more about us, please come.  On the social side, the Lunch Club are going to The Woodman on Thursday, 6th March, and the Visits Group will travel to The Ragged School Museum, Mile End, E3 on Wednesday, 12 March.  An outing to Petworth House is planned  for Tuesday, 25th March, and finally, the committee is arranging a ‘Bangers & Mash’ lunch at St Saviours Church Hall on Thursday, 27th March (£5) 12.45 for 1.00 pm.   

Please do not hesitate to telephone for more information about any of our activities.  Visitors always welcome.
