OWLS

OWLS (older, wiser, livelier seniors) is a club for anyone aged 60 and over. We meet on a monthly basis for a social time together, either in the church hall or out and about in the locality. As well as a cuppa and the chance of a chat, we have a varied programme of guest speakers/entertainers and trips out. Events in the hall normally run from 3pm to around 4.30pm

Transport can be provided for events away from church premises – or, indeed, if you need help to get to the church hall.

All 60+ers are welcome, whether connected to the church or not. If you are on your own, come and make some new friends.

Upcoming OWLS events:

  • Thursday 13th July at 3pm in the church hall: Douglas Macmillan – the man. Douglas Macmillan, founder of Macmillan Cancer Support, lived in Sidcup for more than 40 years and initially ran the charity from his home. Denise Baldwin and Katherine Harding from the Lamorbey and Sidcup Local History Society tell us the life story of the dedicated non-medical man who was inspired to create the much-valued charity that we know today.
  • Wednesday 23rd August in the afternoon: Still rambling on. Leigh Smith will not be talking a lot but he will be pointing us in the right direction as we enjoy another gentle country walk within easy reach of Sidcup. Have no fear, a café will be somewhere nearby!
