Sutton on the Forest YCA

YCA LogoWHO ARE WE AND WHAT DO WE DO ???

The Yorkshire Countrywomen’s Association are a friendly group of women who meet at the Grey Village Hall in Sutton on the Forest on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:30 pm.
Currently we have a growing membership of 50 members.

Chris, Rosie and Stuart HillardWe endeavour to further friendship, inform, and provide mutual support to women living in the village and surrounding areas.
New members of all age groups are always welcome.

We are very proud of our annual programme of speakers, and frequent outings.

 

Canadian Memorial Service 2016Once a month we have a coffee morning where approximately 20 members enjoy delicious homemade scones, jam and cream !!!!   We have an on-going commitment to fund raising and we donate to village amenities as well as to local charitable causes.

Summer Coffee Morning 2016We organise the huge marquee for the Home Produce and Crafts Section of the Huby and Sutton Show and in May in the Village Hall we undertake the catering for the annual Canadians’ Memorial Service and the Open Gardens Weekend which is held every other year. If we say so ourselves people come from far and wide for the delicious homemade cakes alone !!!!
