History


Cogenhoe Young Wives Fellowship started in the 1960’s.  It later became Cogenhoe Wives Fellowship and in 1996 the name was changed again as it was agreed that as it is a group for all ladies, either single or married, it should be renamed Cogenhoe Ladies Fellowship.


Welcome


Cogenhoe Ladies Fellowship is an informal group, and as well as visits by local speakers on a wide range of topics, we enjoy social evenings, an annual dinner, trips out and every year we hold a charity fundraising event.


If there are any ladies in the village who have not yet experienced our warm and friendly group then you are more than welcome to come along and enjoy an evening of fellowship with us.  If you would like to join us but have difficulty getting to our meetings, please don’t hesitate to contact Jean Grubb on 890120.  We would be only too pleased to arrange transport.


Subscriptions: £5.00 per year plus £2.50 per monthly meeting.


Ladies Fellowship Prayer

Heavenly Father, As we meet in Your presence, grant us the peace which flows from You, the love which comes from Jesus and the joy which comes from friendship.  Bless our homes and loved ones. Fill us with your Spirit that through fellowship and by example, many may come to know Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Committee

There has been an increase in membership this year to 39.  Members pay £5 a year and £2.50 each meeting they attend.  We have enjoyed a varied programme of events, catering for all  tastes.  High spots have included slides by Geoff Stone, Elizabeth Packer's enjoyable Snowman Beetle Drive, cakes made by Pam Grove and a trip with our friends from the WI to Barnsdale.  In November a very successful and delicious meal was held at the Royal Oak; so good that we plan to repeat it this year. Following our annual fund raising event £400 was donated to Cynthia Spencer Hospice.  In August we plan to raise money for another worthy cause, the Alzheimer Society.


In the past year a new committee has cooperated to produce an interesting programme of events for 2016/17. We look forward to seeing more people on the second Tuesday of every month.

On May 10th we enjoyed a brilliant demonstration of wood turning by Malcolm Hill.  His gentle humour and easy manner enhanced his expertise. The wooden artefacts he produced were beautiful, the colours coming alive as he worked. The audience were spellbound, in spite of a little dust. The meeting was well attended and we were delighted to welcome a few guests.  Should anyone (male or female) want to come to future events, we would love to see you. Entrance for non-members is £3.

Our next meeting, on  June 14th at 7.30pm, includes a talk on Northampton Guildhall.  All are welcome.
