About the Men’s Forum

The Men’s Forum was formed in 1996 by the late Hughie Tonge who was concerned that there was no activity within the Church for the men of the  Parish.

Hughie approached the Vicar, the Revd. Jeff O’Hare, with the concept of starting a group that could organise meetings with a guest speaker and so provide an interest for the men. The Vicar supported the move and suggested the group be called “The Men’s Forum” and that Hughie go ahead and come up with a programme for the first meeting.  This was done and the following points were made:

  • Meetings held in the parish centre
  • Meetings held on the second Tuesday in the month except December and January
  • A ‘cuppa’ at the conclusion of meetings – a gold coin donation us\\is appreciated to defray costs, however, meetings are voluntary and no fees apply.

We have a lot of interesting speakers, and where appropriate the ladies of the Parish are invited to  join us. Occasionally we have a visit to a ‘place of interest’ and these outings are usually well attended.

The Men’s Forum celebrates the termination of each year with a Christmas Lunch and accompanying entertainment at a selected venue.  This event has proved to be so popular, enjoyed by members and their wives, and it is now open to other Parishioners and their wives.

For further information, please contact David Duncan (Group Convenor) via the Parish Office.
