We have a full program for 2017, starting as usual in February with a 'Back to Club' meeting.

In 2016 we had a number of interesting talks. We learned about the Foundling Hospital in London and the work it does now as the Coram Trust. We also heard about the Home Guard and some of the stories about it.
We found out that The Community Furniture Project is  one of a group of charities who work from Greenham Common  and help people in a variety of ways.
We enjoyed our quizzes and musical evenings and of course the parties.

      Past Events

Thatcham Lakeside Women's Club was started in 1984 and celebrated its 33rd birthday in 2017 with a party and a BBQ held in July. We have around 25 members, with between 15 and 20 at any meeting. We are a friendly group and welcome new members of any age.

For the first time in its history the club advertised for new members last year. We now have several new members and we hope they enjoy the club. We still have room for more!!
