Raynes Park Afternoon Townswomen's Guild - September 2016

On that record breaking September Tuesday, an understandably rather small  group of ladies braved the heat to visit the Salvation Army Heritage Centre and Museum at Denmark Hill.  Although quite small, this is a well presented history of the Salvation Army from its formation and work in the 1800s right through to its activities worldwide today.  Returning to Clapham Junction on the Overground Railway (air conditioned!) we investigated the numerous food outlets and kiosks set up on the overhead pedestrian bridge.  We even found a corner to sit for a drink and a sandwich before the return on SW trains! 

On another hot day, two visitors joined our September Open Social, a relaxed affair, at which we worked through two quiz sheets as well as enjoying savouries, cake and tea. 

In September the lunch club visited central Sutton, and plan to visit The Plough on Sutton Common Road in October.  The visit will be to The Vintners Hall on Upper Thames Street. 

On Thursday, October 20th our speaker will be Julie Chandler whose subject is ‘History of the Sewers of London’.  This meeting will be held at 1.45 at St Saviour’s Church Hall, Grand Drive. 

Visitors are always welcome to our meetings or other activities.  For more information please telephone.
