The Raynes Park Afternoon TOWNSWOMENS GUILD   

In July last year I told you about the mixed fortunes of our 85th birthday celebration lunch. 

We are one of the oldest TWG branches nationally and this year is the 90th anniversary of the setting up of the national movement.  Accordingly, in April we plan to attend a national Thanksgiving Service at St Martin’s in the Fields, Trafalgar Square; and in May a lunch is being arranged by the Federation of branches in North-East Surrey to be held at St Bede’s Hall (behind St Raphael’s) in Cheam Road.  

At our Raynes Park AGM in February,  the retiring officers and committee were reappointed for another year. 

In March the popular lunch club dined at the Morden Brook and on Monday 11th, a rather disappointing turnout of members visited the All Saints Church in Kingston for the regular Monday lunchtime concert, this time given by the Alianor Piano Trio (Piano, Violin, Cello), a very competent group whose programme of music was well received by a an appreciative audience.  Also, of interest was a small art display by Pauline Creed. 

The April meeting which is to be held on Thursday 18th will be a social occasion featuring a beetle drive.  May’s scheduled speaker is Bob Sinfield,  whose talk is entitled ‘The great unwatched’. 

We welcome visitors or others interested in our activities.  Our meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of each month at St Saviour’s Church Hall, 1.30 for 1.45 pm, 

Dorothy Raymond

Vice Chairman
