Emmaus Church Centre

Yorkie group

Some years ago Colin Wide formed the Yorkie Group that arranged talks and visits to places of interest. The group is open to both church members and non-church members. It provides the opportunity to meet together in an informal setting to share experiences and fellowship. The group generally meet once a month. Listed below are some of the recent events and also some forthcoming activities. Please contact the church if you would like to join the group on any of the activities outlined.

Please find below an update concerning the men's Yorkie Group at Emmaus Church...

1) SAT 11th SEPT BBQ:

Our first event is on Sat 11th Sept, 6pm, at Salthouse Farm. We will be having a BBQ and a competitive game of Kubb.  The BBQ food will be £5 each paid on the day.  Thanks to those that have already confirmed that they're coming along.  For those that haven't yet, please let me know not later than close of play tomorrow/Fri 10th Sept so that I can order the correct amount of BBQ nosh. Also let me know any dietary needs too.


I'm also pleased to provide an update on the following two future events. As usual please confirm if you're planning on coming along so that we know numbers.
Exact dates / times for the other events will be confirmed nearer the time.

UPDATE: Sat 9th Oct @1230pm - Bring own picnic followed by a walk at Lower Woods nature reserve (GL9 1BX) led by Damian - link for info/directions etc: https://www.gloucestershirewildlifetrust.co.uk/nature-reserves/lower-woods
Please make your own way there, but if we can share lifts the better. I have a people carrier so I have space for 5 others so let me know if you need a lift!
