Hilltop Women’s Group -    50 YEARS HILLTOPS 

We believe it is 50 years since the inauguration of this Wickham Skeith village club.  Founded all those years ago by young mums who were glad of a place to meet with their toddlers and who stayed in touch when the children moved on. It evolved into a women's group, welcoming other females to meetings once a month, inviting guest speakers, holding activities and outings and enjoying the opportunities of sharing time, socially and locally, with neighbours and friends.

It is not affiliated to other organisations, but has a hands-on joint committee deciding the programme and sharing ideas for the year. Always diverse and interesting, in a world where we try to please all of the people some of the time, sharing events with the larger community and raising funds for local charities on an annual basis.

If you haven't been to a meeting, here is a small selection of things you have missed:-

  • cookery demonstrations and workshops
  • fashion shows 
  • talks by national and international speakers, artisans and experts
  • film nights
  • dance experiences
  • inspirational women who have achieved success in their fields
  • outings to interesting and beautiful places
  • and time to share away from television, computers, children etc!!

We usually get together in the village hall once a month for the princely sum of £1.00 per meeting and an annual subscription of £10.00.

On Saturday 17st July, if all the rules can be adhered to, we propose a celebration of our fifty years in the form of an Afternoon Tea, with a special cake and fizz. 

Venue to be decided, depending on the weather and regulations at the time.

It would be good to share memories and meet with previous and current members, near and far, and some potential new members with new ideas to go forward with this village club après Covid. 

We will remind you nearer the time, but it is a date to put on the calendar, and let's face it, we haven't had a lot of them recently!! Any comments please direct to:
