Not the first time we have changed our name!
The Women’s Wednesday Fellowship, which has always been open to all, has now changed its name to Hinchley Wood Fellowship. It still meets at Hinchley Wood School on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 7.00pm. We have interesting talks from outside speakers, hold meetings on various topics and go on occasional outings.
In June the author Monica Weller had us gripped by the talk she gave on her book “Injured Parties” which set out her theories on an unsolved murder which took place in the 1960s. She presented her subject cleverly, which resulted in brisk sales of her book – a thrilling read.
We held our fundraising tea party in the Church Hall in July. The delicious scones, cream, jam and cakes on offer and the fundraising raffle and “lucky dip” raised £190 on the day for the Charity, The Friends of Kingston Hospital.
During the Summer we went on outings which included a pleasant trip to the Pheasantry Cafe in Bushy Park on 24th June and an enjoyable orchestral and choral concert at St Mary’s Church, Long Ditton, on 14th July.
We recently enjoyed a talk by historian Mike Brown on “The Day Peace Broke Out – V.E. Day”. He brought along fascinating old newspaper clips, photos and souvenirs for us to look at.
The programme for the rest of 2019 is:
27th November: Publishing Memoirs – talk by Ted Woodruffe Peacock 11th December: “BC to AD” – a celebration of Christmas, held jointly with the Mothers’ Union, including wine and mince pies.
