Rural Social Groups

Our rural social groups continue to grow.  We have one based in Ashford in the Water which meets every Wednesday; Hartington, Boylestone (Ashbourne) and Bamford meet monthly.  Amanda Newton runs a new group which meet every 3rd Thursday of the month at Matlock Meadows Farm.  See programmes for dates. They are lively meetings of retired and semi retired farmers and family members who meet for tea and a chat with meals out and speakers thrown in for good measure.

We welcome all new members
