Oxlip plany

The group was formed in 1992 after breaking away from the Women’s Institute as it was considered both expensive and less relevant to rural communities such as Great Bardfield.

Since the beginning of 2014 it is now our aim to open the membership to both Ladies and Gentlemen and of course visitors are always welcome. Meetings are held at 2.30 on the second Tuesday of the month in Great Bardfield Town Hall.

Members subscription is £25.00 per annum.

Visitors - £5.00 per meeting.

Tea or coffee and biscuits are served following our talks. A raffle is held with the proceeds given to one of the three chosen local charities that we continue to support.

Essex and Herts Air Ambulance Trust, Farleigh Hospice and The Creamer Fund.

Added to our monthly talks, a summer outing and a theatre trip are organised, with an occasional bring and buy plant and book stalls. Details of our talks can be found in the Bardfield Times and posters displayed around the village.

Our year concludes with a Christmas lunch.

We would very much like to increase our membership and extend a very warm welcome to everyone.
