The Women's Club was founded in 1970 as Helmdon Young Wives and
Mothers' club by Elizabeth Humphrey, who was its first chairman,
with Mrs Jock Humphrey as President and Maud Peart as Vice-President.
It changed its name in 1992 as the original name no longer reflected
the age group of the majority of its members.
Its programme includes speakers and demonstrations
as well as social evenings such as the annual Silly Sports and
Pot Luck Suppers. It meets in the Reading Room on the third Wednesday
of every month except August.
Over the years it has held money-raising events
for charity, including the Gulf War Red Cross Appeal, and each
year organises a Christmas party for retired people.
