The Tuesday Club was started in 1976 for residents of Weedon and Hardwick to provide entertaining talks and activities in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for anyone who was interested.
Over the years we have attracted and welcomed additional members from other villages. We have covered a multitude of topics, gone out on fascinating visits and been entertained by many and various talented people.
Thanks to our loyal and dedicated members, coupled with the enthusiasm of the committee, we are in our 43rd year with another varied and interesting programme. Printable copy here.
We meet in Weedon Old Schoolroom usually at 8 pm on the second Tuesday of the month. Activities are advertised in The Parish Magazine & Village Newsletter and here on this website.
The annual subscription is £10 or £3 per meeting for non-members. At every meeting there is a raffle (50p per ticket) and tea/coffee and biscuits are served after the talk (50p).
We are always delighted to welcome new members. For further information, please feel free to contact Judy Nagele on 01296 641278. Or just come along and give it a try!
