Christmas Lunch Meeting Hythe Townswomen’s Guild meet on the 2nd Thursday of each month at St Andrew’s Centre, Dibden Purlieu at 2.30pm. On Thursday 13th September they had a very informative, entertaining talk on the Suffragettes. Jane Glennie, was dressed as a Suffragette and once she put her hat on she actually was one! She played the part so well, telling them all the events leading up to the woman’s vote, how the Mail newspaper was dead against it, and the Liberal Prime Minister was against it as he thought that women would not vote for him! But finally women got the vote but they had to be over 30 and householders. In November they had a talk on The Longest Journey – Maybe! by Mr Howerd Nichols. Their Annual Carol Service will be held at Lordshill Church on Saturday 8th December . The next meeting will be held on Friday 14th December for their Christmas Lunch Meeting.
