Welcome to our web page, in this our Centenary Year!
We are a friendly and active group and we meet on the third Monday of each month (except August) in Houghton Village Hall at 7.30pm. Visitors are made very welcome, and we pride ourselves on our refreshments!
We take part in the County Skittles and Darts competitions and Quiz, and we also have outings to theatres, gardens or other places of interest to our members. Our Programme for the second half of 2018 and into 2019 will include a special Centenary Celebration Lunch for past and present members in June, which will be attended by the Mayor and Mayoress of Test Valley. An outing is planned to Heale House Gardens in August, and a Craft Day with Windrush Willows in November.
We run a Lunch Club and Book Club which both meet monthly – the first to sample local eating-places and the second to provide an informal forum for discussing a wide variety of books, suggested by the members. We also run an occasional Walking Club, usually involving a circular walk with a visit to an eatery along the way!
For further information, please contact the current President, Jane Anderton, on 01264 810 928
