Tuesday 10th December 2019 12:00Men's Fellowship: Pub LunchMost people will be familiar with the Women’s Institute, a national body with local branches in Halstead and Badgers Mount. Fewer may be aware of the male equivalent operating in various places around the country. Many of these Men’s Fellowships are attached to particular church denominations, but others, including St Margaret’s, are not linked to any national organisation. Put simply, the Fellowship offers the opportunity to hear interesting speakers on fascinating topics and to meet socially. Our current pattern involves alternate monthly activities. To take the current year 2019-20, there are talks in September, November, January, March and May, with lunches in local pubs in the alternative months and a summer supper to include partners in July. Talks are usually held in the North Room at St Margaret’s at 8 p.m. on the second Tuesday. If you’d like to come along- no age limits- or also if you’ve got a topic you’d like to speak about, please contact Martin Couchman on 01959 532253.
