St Peter’s Women’s Group

Over 40 years ago the group was started by young wives who met together with their small children. We now meet on the first and third Tuesday in each month during term time at the Portland Studio at 7.30pm. To see the details of the events listed below please click here to view the calendar.

The committee endeavours to offer a wide and varied programme including speakers, visits, craft evenings and normally two outings for a meal each year.
