We meet every Monday between 2.00pm - 4pm. The programme is an eclectic mix of games and quiz afternoons, various speakers, slide shows and several outings. You do not have to be a member to come on our trips, just ask if there is space available.

Over the past year our Monday afternoon meetings have included such topics as Cathedrals, Castles and Canals, Textiles and Embroidery, Parks and Gardens, Montana, Missouri and Russia and a variety of talks on Local History. We have also enjoyed two lunch outings, afternoon tea at Morley Retreat, a visit to the garden of Graham and Judy White in Uttoxeter and, most recently, a factory tour of the Denby Pottery. With the help of our two yearly Auctions, our charitable giving in 2015 has been quite exceptional. The organisations benefitting from our donations are as follows:-

 Air Ambulance                          £360

The Church on Oakwood                  £250

Macmillan                                        £110

Treetops Hospice                            £100

Mission Aviation Fellowship              £75

Forget-Me-Notts                              £45

Derby City Mission                          £35

The Children’s Society                     £36

 a  total of £1011.

 Although attendance fluctuates, there is a real sense of warmth, friendship and caring at our meetings. Many of our members not only meet up in Church on Sundays or at the Monday meetings but in many activities together on other days of the week. Please join us, we welcome everyone.
