The very successful Christmas Cracker event saw guests gather at Grotton Pavilion to enjoy a flower demonstration by Kathleen Williams, from Oldham Flower Club.

Kathleen gave a very informative and amusing talk while making some lovely

festive arrangements which were then included in the raffle. Mince pies and wine were served.

Other fundraising events throughout the year included a tapas evening, silent auction, strawberry tea and the annual lunch at The White Hart in Lydgate.

The Woman of Oldham committee is looking for a charity to support in 2020. Any local charity can ask for an application form by calling Janet Larton on 0161 652 8878.
