About the Club:

The Club was chartered in 1949.

St Neots is an old market town on the banks of the River Great Ouse and a weekly market has been held here for over 1000 years.

In the tenth century a priory was built and it was here that a bone of St Neot was brought from its resting place in the Cornish village of St Neots. The relic has long since been lost.   St Neots is also famous for the Mills quads and the Eynesbury Giant.

 

Club Activities:

President Hazel's charity this year is Homestart in St Neots. Members have enjoyed a talk from their representative and are pleased to support the work they do with family of children under 5 in our area.

 

On 20th November at the United Reform Church in St Neots we will be holding a Christmas Craft Fair from 9.30 to 1.30.  Proceeds will go to the East Anglian Air Ambulance and the Child Funeral Charity.  Our members have been very busy holding sewing days to make items for sale.

 

In October 2015 a wonderful quiz night was held raising money for Homestart and MS local therapy centre. The questions provoked lots of discussion, some decencion but always lots of fun. It was a full house and 2 more teams had to be turned away.

 

The next event is a Harvest supper organised by the International committee to support Life Straws and School in a bag.

 

Members are collecting ring pulls from cans to be made into bags and jewellery by groups in the Philippines.

 

Later in November a coffee morning with bring and buy of crafts and provisions. These events are always well attended and great fun and friendship.
