The Women’s Club was founded in 1970 as Helmdon Young Wives and Mothers’ club by Elizabeth Humphrey, who was its first chairperson, with Mrs Jock Humphrey as president and Maud Pert as vice-president. It changed its name in 1992 and has since been known as Helmdon Women’s Club.
The Women’s Club still has a very active membership of all ages, and meets in the Reading Room on the third Wednesday of every month except August.
A friendly and relaxed atmosphere is created at all Women’s Club meetings, with members not just from Helmdon but from other nearby villages. The ‘young at heart spirit’ is often reinforced wine and numerous giggles, although competitive rivalry always appears at the quiz evening. Activities from ‘Kinky boots’, cooking at ‘Take Thyme’ and visits to the wonderful gardens at Upper Tysoe, to a BBQ at a member’s house in Helmdon are enjoyed by us all.
We would love to see any new members at our next meeting, please come along to the Reading Room, or contact any member of the committee.
