Welcome Club

The Welcome Club (now into about its sixtieth year) is a group for older people living in Blakesley and Woodend or nearby, that meets, usually in the Reading Room, on the last Thursday afternoon each month. We try to provide as varied a programme as possible, sometimes a pub lunch, a visit, or an interesting speaker and always a delicious tea ! If you are interested, do come along and join us, we have lots of lovely members, and some gentlemen, as well, as ladies. Here is a list of our plans for 2017.
