Monday Club

 

NIMG_0608ext meeting:
Monday 3 September:
#An introduction to English Heraldry : Heraldry has been used by people to identify themselves since the 1200s. What started out very simple as in the glass in the north and south chancel windows at Norbury gradually became more complicated. John Titterton hopes to show you by using a number of examples of coats of arms from the local area what it can tell you about a person and his or her family. This talk is open to the general public.  
The talk will start at 2.30pm  and all are welcome. Admission is £2.00 to include tea and biscuits.

Monday Club – 6 August

Many thanks to David Smith for his enlightening talk in St Peter’s Church entitled ‘They left their mark’. The event was very well attended and without any doubt, everyone went away having learnt something new about the people and societies who have influenced the life of and the actual building of this lovely church.

#The Ellastone Monday Club meets in the Parish Hall on the first Monday of the month (including Bank Holidays) at 2.30pm.

The club has been running now for 14 years. In the beginning it was for the over-60s, but now everyone is welcome. Each month there is a speaker or demonstration, followed by the all-important cup of tea and a chat.

#We have a varied programme of speakers & films, and a Garden Meeting in the summer. Occasionally we go out for a meal. There is no fee for joining – you pay £2.00 when you come & this includes tea & biscuits.   For further details please contact Pam Shouksmith: 324094.  

Derbyshire Dales CarelineWhat is it?

Careline offers a FREE telephone befriending service to people living in the Derbyshire Dales and Uttoxeter area.

They aim to make people’s lives better by calling those who feel in need of support – they may be elderly, less able to get out, recently bereaved, feeling lonely or isolated. They offer friendship to the people they call and peace of mind to their family and friends.

They monitor people’s well-being and pass on useful information about the services available to them in their local community.

The service is completely free and available every day of the year including weekends and bank holidays. Click on the logo above for more information.

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. It is a very good place to find out information if you are new to the village as several long-time members have lived in Ellastone all their lives and can quite possibly give you some history about your own house that you didnt know!
