Chesterfield & District Federation has 12 Guilds, the
Federation area covering Chesterfield (5), Dronfield (4), Clay Cross,
Wingerworth and Bakewell.
We regularly hold events for our members, including our annual lunch or dinner. In the pipeline we have an Afternoon Tea planned for the summer and an outing to Halifax.
In the past few years we have opened five Guilds in
Wingerworth, Bakewell, Brampton, whittington and, just this year, Calow; all are morning Guilds and all are doing
As a Federation we enjoy getting involved in National events
– we are always well represented at the AGM, Carol Services International Days and
Our General Knowledge Quiz Team has won the Cup five times!
Council meetings are held six times a year, with the
committee meeting in the alternate months.
Only nine of us on the committee – we’re always asking for more volunteers,
but ….! However, we are Townswomen, so
we manage to arrange all our events and business meetings!
We have a mixed bag of guilds, meeting at all times of the
day – some with few members, others quite large in number. And they are all, of course, very
different. Each Guild presents an annual
report at a Council meeting throughout the year and it is always most
interesting to hear of their activities, speakers and, more often than not,
their lunches, teas, dinners etc – any excuse for a good feed!
