Thackley Wives Group have just celebrated 50 years!
It’s quite amazing to see some of the ladies who are still active members and actually started the group back in 1962. Founder members included Pat Farrar, Mary Souter, Mary Metcalfe, Jeanne Peckover, Jean Heggs and Margaret Austin.
Over the past years the Wives have raised considerable amounts of money for the church, and helped at the Christmas and Summer Fairs. Well done Ladies!
A celebration took place at Oakwood Hall.
The amount raised at the Ladies Group Summer Fair was £385.70. I think that this was a really good result and amply repaid all the time and effort put into it by many people.
Thanks very much!
When we arrived at church this morning, there was already a buzz around the place as the Guides had had a sleepover in the church hall and were busy putting the finishing touches to their plans for morning worship. Well, we say sleepover, some got more sleep than others; we suspect those who were still awake at 4.30 am may be taking an afternoon nap.
The theme of their service was "Words" and their wonderful words took us on an inspiring and thought provoking journey:
