Pakefield Wives – who are we?

We are a group of women who meet fortnightly on Wednesdays in Pakefield Church Hall, beginning at 7.30pm, unless otherwise stated, and our aims are:

*  Promoting friendship, support and social activities for women in the local community

*  Raising funds for our three charitable causes for this year –  Waveney Area Community Trust (Dial-a-Ride), East Anglia Air Ambulance and Cancer Research.

All women are welcome (whether or not you are a wife !) 

The first meeting of 2020 was held on the 8th January and was the AGM, followed by a bring-and-share supper and then a quiz.

Sheila B opened the meeting with a prayer and a short humorous poem.

From the agenda of the AGM it has been agreed that, as from September this year, the meetings will be held monthly, that is, the second Wednesday of each month with the Christmas meal and outing as extras.

The two possible charities suggested to support this year are Blood Bikes and The Salvation Army, to be confirmed at a later date.

Sheila Bailey is to be the leader from September and Frances and Sue (Cowley) are stepping down as committee members, Elizabeth Crosson and Sue Coleby were voted on the committee.

Diary Dates : 5th February – We will be celebrating our Diamond Anniversary and on the 19th Cathy Cook will be here to talk about Bluebell Ladies.
