Ladies Group

Ladies Group

We offer a warm welcome to all ladies in Seaton Ross and surrounding villages.
We meet on the first Tuesday of each month, normally from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm in Seaton Ross Village Hall, for chat, discussion or a speaker, and refreshments.
Sometimes we have an outing instead of a meeting.
To cover costs we ask for £2.00 per person for a cup of tea/coffee and cake/pastries and a ticket for the raffle.
Our first get together for 2020 will be Tuesday January 7th and the subject is Kitchenalia – please bring with you the oldest item, most useless or unusual or favourite thing in your kitchen (this may not be your partner!). 
Diary dates 2020:
7th January, 4th February, 3rd March, 7th April, 5th May, 2nd June
If you (or you know anyone) who would like to give a short talk to the group, about their specialism and/or their passion, we would be very happy to hear from you.  New ideas are also very welcome.
Please contact Kay on 01759 318991 or via email at
Many thanks to Christine and Anne who have run the Group very successfully over the last few years.  Huge thanks from all the ladies in the group for all your hard work and commitment.

Village Hall Talks

During the autumn/ winter the Village Hall plans to hold a series of talks in which speakers from the village who have a specialist skill/interest/experience, share their knowledge. There will be no charge for entry.
Our thanks to Dr Sharon Croskin who began the series with a stimulating and very interesting talk on TRAUMA – the body keeps the score.
Our thanks also to Simon Thompson, dog handler and canine first aid trainer, who gave a talk on DOG FIRST AID, which was very informative and thoroughly enjoyed.
On Tuesday 21st January at 7.30pm, Dr Peter Williams will tell us about A YEAR IN A WOODLAND GARDEN.

The well-stocked glasshouse and large polytunnel have a wide range of plants propagated from seeds, cuttings and grafting. The meadow area and woodland is home to owls, goldcrests and sparrow hawks.

We are delighted that we have been left another bequest and St Edmund’s Church now has comfortable pew cushions as well as central heating.

The Church is always looking for new members for the Parochial Church Council and helpers for the flower and cleaning rota. If you are interested please contact Jane Henley on 01759 318411.


The People’s Pantry is a new service for the residents of Market Weighton and Pocklington.  It is open to everyone in need of help to support themselves and their families.  It is a not for profit enterprise ran by volunteers and is a member of FareShare (a charity aimed at reliving food poverty and reducing food waste in the UK).  Membership is being sponsored by the Pocklington District Lions Club.

We are offering a collection point at the back of Seaton Ross church.  Just drop off anything and we will make sure it gets to The People’s Pantry (but no perishables please).

If any resident of Seaton Ross would like to use the pantry, please phone the Reverend Stephen Cope on 01430 626728. Your application will be treated in the strictest of confidence and it may be possible to help with transport.
