(3 of 7)
Mostly Women is a social get together at the Heathmount Hotel for anyone that wishes to come.

The idea is to bring along your knitting, sewing or craft, have a coffee and cake and chat, exchange craft ideas and maybe learn a new skill. However we now tend to mostly meet for a blether and don't always bring along crafts.

We sometimes will have a meal together at the Heathmount, so will meet earlier on those days.

Check Crown Church website for any change of meeting times.

It is a mixed age range group.

Meeting Times
   Wednesday : 1930 to 2100 Monthly

Note
   Please note that we only meet during school term time/ last Wednesday of the month.

There are open meetings for the whole group fortnightly. Sometimes a guest speaker entertains us, or the afternoon might feature a poetry reading, a DVD or a quiz. Afterwards, we enjoy a wee blether over tea and biscuits, and catch up with group news. There is also a small group library. We also have special outings from time to time, such as our popular New Year lunch.

Our groups include French, History, Italian, Lunch Group, Mah Jong, Photography, Quiz and Games, Scottish Country Dancing, Scrabble and Sewing Bee.

Joining is simple - just come along to one of our open meetings and pay at the door. New members are welcome at any time. Non-members are welcome to attend any speaker meetings that interest them. However, our study groups are for members only.
