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:
Friday 16th August: Exploring Hall Place. We have the opportunity to enjoy Hall Place in Bexley. Wander round the ornate gardens, the glasshouses, the butterfly house and plant sale area, and even the Tudor mansion itself. Explore on your own or with friends, but perhaps aim to be there around midday so as to enjoy lunch with the group in the café around 12.30 or 1pm.
Monday 23rd September: Winston's country home. Mr Paul Laundy is coming to tell us the history of Chartwell, near Westerham, which was the family home of Sir Winston and Lady Churchill from 1922 and his hideaway when he needed to escape from the pressures of leadership and political life. Chartwell is now owned and maintained by the National Trust
Thursday 10th October: Board games afternoon. We gather in the church hall to enjoy some board games together in light-hearted fashion. If you reckon you are good at Scrabble, draughts, Ludo or Rummikub, come along and show us; otherwise, just watch and relax with a cuppa. Ploughman’s lunch together from 1.15pm.
