Who are we?
We are group of ladies, many of whom attend services at either St Benedict Biscop or the Venerable Bede churches in Wombourne. The group meets on the second and fourth Thursday of each month at the Venerable Bede Hall in Giggetty Lane, Wombourne WV5 9ED. Our meetings commence promptly at 8.00 pm. Visitors are always made welcome.
What do we do?
Once the meeting has been formally opened and any outstanding administration and organisational matters addressed, a speaker for the evening is introduced, who then presents their talk, followed by a question and answer session. The evening concludes with coffee and biscuits and general conversation – the atmosphere is very informal. In addition to the meetings, members and their spouses, or partners are able to take advantage of an annual, long weekend break by coach, to an area of interest within the UK.
What is the current programme of meetings and events?
Wives ended 2019 with a very enjoyable Christmas lunch at The Springhill. See photos.
With the start of a new decade Wives’ first meeting of 2020 began with a Communion and Faith Supper and a good old catch up with everyone! Our second meeting we turned our thoughts to holidays, so who better to have welcomed to our meeting than a Dunwood Travel representative with plentiful ideas to inspire us whether in the UK, or abroad.
