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:

  • Saturday 23rd March 2019, 2pm to 5pm in the church hall: Let's dance! We have the opportunity to put on our dancing shoes (or maybe just watch from the sidelines) as live band The Cotton Reels and their caller lead us in an all-age barn dance.
