Tockwith Country Women’s Association: In October, Country Women and friends from Tockwith, Thorpe Arch and Boroughbridge Groups had the chance to do some Christmas shopping at the Gateshead Metro Centre. The bad weather did spoil the day for those that wanted to do things other than shop but, for those that shopped, a good time was had by all. The next meeting of the group is on Wednesday, November 28, when the speaker will be Norma Neuff speaking on Disability Sport (What Disability). The December meeting is the very popular Christmas party with local entertainment and visitors from other clubs. Should you be interested in joining or want further information on the group, which meets monthly, then please contact Stephanie Smith on 01423 358481.
