The Guild of St Michael, Blundellsands

St Michael’s Guild is a social group open to everybody. We meet in the Church Hall at 8 pm on the first and third Tuesdays of the month from October to May.

Everyone is welcome to hear our interesting talks for about an hour.  These are usually illustrated, on a wide range of subjects followed by tea/coffee and biscuits for those who wish to stay longer.  We also enjoy an annual lunch, a Christmas Celebration with visiting choir and seasonal refreshments and a summer outing.

Just turn up on the night. The cost is £2 per meeting including refreshments, and the subscription for the year £10. For further information contact Joan Hollinghurst on 924 7889, or by writing to
