OLC Social Group

The brief of the Social Group became to organize events through the year to enable parishioners to socialize. If money for the parish were raised along the way, so be it!

Originally, the Group was responsible for instigating the major fundraising in respect of parish projects, such as the church renovation, but this has been transferred back to the Parish Council. The Social Group, however, continues to coordinate the Annual Draw and the Christmas Hamper Raffle.

Each year it organises various events. Previously an Auction of Promises, Quiz Evenings, Race Nights, a Hog Roast, Golf Days and Theme Evenings, such as the still-talked-about Spanish Evening, have been successfully staged.

The Group is also available to help and advise other parish organisations on fundraising events, ticketing, licenses, hall hire, etc.

Committee members and new ideas are warmly welcomed. Please contact the Chair, Rebecca Richards.

Parishioners can access the minutes of the Social Group's meetings by signing in to the Parish Area.
