Pakefield Wives – who are we?

 We are a group of women who meet fortnightly on Wednesdays in Pakefield Church Hall, beginning at 8 pm, unless otherwise stated, and our aims are:

*  Promoting friendship, support and social activities for women in the local community

*  Raising funds for our four charitable causes for this year –  Local Befriending Scheme;  SOLD – Special Objectives for local disabled; Seagull Theatre who host local groups and Pathways Care Farm.

All women are welcome (whether or not you are a wife !) and visitors pay £1 on the door. Please contact our leader Marilyn Cheeseman for further information  on Tel. 01502 528526 or just come along.


The bingo night on the 29th November was not only great fun but raised the sum of £250 for our chosen charities. Festive prizes were won by excited members and visitors and Maureen Moir took home the star prize of a generous hamper. Thank you Gay for your hard work organising the event and to everyone who contributed to prizes.

The Christmas Carol Service held on the 13th December is always a special event in our programme following a familiar pattern of carols and readings. Afterwards, we went to the church hall where the Waveney Singers entertained us with songs for the season – they were great – many thanks to them. Tea and mince tarts followed and a raffle, the proceeds of which is going to E.A.C.H. and Cancer Research.

Our next meeting will be our AGM on Wednesday 24th January and is also a bring and share evening.

Our meeting on the 7th February is a talk about our local museum – The East Anglia Transport Museum.
