Our Woodley Group started in 1970 and was originally called the Woodley Ginger Group. Traditionally we have all met on a Wednesday evening but we are now also including more daytime meetings into our programme. We enjoy having discussions on a wide range of topics, occasionally having speakers and in the summer visits to places of interest.

At the present time our group has ten members and our year is divided into three terms roughly the same as the school terms. We have a break from meetings in August, and before the end of each term we plan our programme for the next four months.

We meet in each other houses every two weeks, and our Wednesday evening meetings start at 19:30. Our winter morning meetings start at 10:00 in January 2022 still fortnightly and alternating between Mondays and Fridays. In the spring and summer almost all of our meetings are on a Wednesday evening. We always have refreshments during the meeting provided by the host. Our Wednesday quiz evening which is held on Zoom takes place between our other meetings so we have something going on every week.

As well as our Local Organiser we also have Deidre as our Treasurer and Lynn as Publicity Organiser. Amongst other things Lynn posts our activities on NWR social media. Moira runs our fortnightly Letter Quiz and all of the group help out when the need arises. We enjoy the many Zoom talks/quizzes that the NWR organisation put on for us and we also have a WhatsApp group.

A couple of highlights from the year are our Summer and Christmas parties, held at the end of July and December where we all provide the refreshments. We have a fun evening as well as fitting in some programme planning.

Since the spring of 2020 we have had a weekly Zoom programme with all of the group enjoying quizzes plus other topics. These last two summers we have also held morning garden meetings to keep in touch.

At the moment all of our meetings are on Zoom but that will be changing soon.

All new members can be assured of a warm welcome and you may attend three taster sessions before joining us. Please click on our Events listed below. Download our programme, contact us and come along to one of our meetings
