Ellastone Monday Club

This club has been running now for 10 years. In the beginning it was for the over-60s, but now anyone is welcome. Each month there is a speaker or #demonstration, followed by the all-important cup of tea and a chat. Meetings are on the first Monday of each month (including Bank Holidays) and occasionally we go out for a meal. Please help us to keep this club going to share friendship, which is very important as we get older, but also for the not so old – a very pleasant gathering!

Meetings begin at 2.30pm in the Parish Hall and admission is £1.50 to include tea and biscuits. . Click on the title for further information or contact Pam Shouksmith on 324094. We look forward to seeing you.
