Seasonal Lunches and Annual Dinner - 2021- 22

The club arranges special Seasonal Lunches in spring, autumn and winter.

These along with the summer Annual Dinner are the main social highlights

 of the year when wives, partners, friends and wives of former members are all invited.

 Wortley Hall is the venue for all these occasions, and it is hoped that there is now an

end in sight to these events having to be cancelled

Last year’s Annual Dinner, which had been rearranged for this August, is now booked for Tuesday 2 November at 6.30 for 7pm with entertainment from Fools Gold (the husband-and-wife folk duo with a story to tell) to follow the three course meal


The Winter Lunch will be held on Tuesday 15 February ‘22 at 12.30 for 1pm


Varied menus for pre-booking these events will be available nearer the time


We organise visits – both locally and further afield to places of special interest, and when practical these are opened to partners, family members, non-members, and friends.  Travel to and from these venues is often done by car sharing, but for longer trips we arrange coach hires, which many of us find more relaxing.
