Pakefield Wives – who are we?

We are a group of women who meet on the  fourth Thursday of the month in Pakefield Church Hall, beginning at 2.00pm, unless otherwise stated.

Our aims are:

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

*  Raising funds for our charitable causes.

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


After an opening prayer, Sheila read out the notices and the letters from EACH and Cancer Research acknowledging and thanking members for their donations.  Cancer Research vowed to “make the gift count”.

We have Bingo meetings perhaps twice a year, as we did on the 28th March.  For thissession we had graduated to a state-of-the-art Thomas Super Select which displays on a screen the number called and Gay only has to press a button and the number comes up on the screen. On the reverse side, the winning numbers can be displayed and checked.  Not surprisingly, given the season, all the prizes were mainly chocolate.   There were hot cross buns and tea served by the committee for refreshments, during which the raffle was called.

Sheila presented Gay with a bouquet of seasonal flowers with thanks for providing entertainment for the meeting.

The next meeting is on the 25th April when a representative from Pakefield Coast Watch will be telling us more about their work which is of very local interest based as they are in the old lighthouse outside Pontins.

Prayer for April 2024
based on John 20: 19-endAlmighty Father,  

In these weeks after Easter, help us to receive afresh
the new life Jesus’ resurrection makes possible.
Lord, come to us. Walk through the locked doors of our fears.
Bring us your peace. Fill us with your Holy Spirit.
Send us onto our daily front lines to share your resurrection
peace and hope and love with those who are lost and lonely.
Thank you for meeting us in Jesus, our Lord and our God.
We are your Easter people. Hallelujah. Amen.
