Townswomen’s Guild


The Townswomen Guild organisation is made up of 840 branches throughout the United Kingdom with around 34,000 members.

Wetherby Townswomen’s Guild meets on the second Monday of each month in the Methodist Church hall, Bank Street.

At most meetings there is a guest speaker.  Topics in the recent past have included

  • A Man’s a Man for a’ that – Robert Burns
  • My Life as a GP
  • Irving Berlin – The Man and His Music

and those planned for 2013 include Volunteering in Country Houses, My Life in the Prison Service, and L S Lowry, artist.

Following the presentation there is the opportunity for a chat with fellow members over a cup of tea or coffee.

Lunches, outings to places of interest and visits to the theatre are arranged throughout the year; a coffee morning is held every other month at the Windmill Inn in Linton and there is a social evening in August and a party at Christmas.

Membership also affords the opportunity to join one of the groups within the Guild.  There is a walking group, members of which undertake walks of up to 7 miles on one Monday and one Thursday each month and who enjoy a four-day walking holiday each year.  Craft, canasta and film groups each meet once a month and the Guild holds fund-raising events in support of its chosen charity of the year.

Members receive a copy of Townswoman magazine every quarter keeping them up-to-date with Guild activities all over the country as well as matters of national importance.

Membership for the year is currently £26.00, but women are welcome to come as a guest to one or two meetings for a nominal £1 to get a better idea of what we are all about.
