Capel Ladies Club is 52 years old this autumn, and we’d like to think it’s an integral part of life in our community. We are currently looking to encourage new members to join us and bolster our numbers, whilst bringing some new ideas and interests to the club. We have a range of interesting speakers and activities planned for this year as soon as things return to normal.
Hope everyone reading this is keeping well and safe in these strange times. By now we are getting used to this different way of living, but at the same time we all miss normality and seeing neighbours, friends and family up close and personal! I’ve been really impressed how the situation has brought out such a wonderful community spirit in Capel! People looking out for each other and willing to help with shopping or be a friendly voice on the phone…
My hope is that it will continue when this is all over, which I’m sure it will. I personally am missing Capel Ladies Club and the outside interests and friendship connections it brings us members each month, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. So, Ladies, chin up – stay safe and carry on! In the words of the song –
“We’ll meet again
Don’t know where
Don’t know when
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day!
Keep smiling through
While you’re hand-washing too
‘Till the Doctors drive the virus far away!”

This year’s theme for the annual Festival of Trees & Lights at the Capel St Mary Parish Church was FILMS.
Capel Ladies Club decorated a tree to represent the classic Gene Kelly musical, ‘Singing In The Rain’.
The whole display comprising more than 30 trees lit up St Mary’s Church and looked beautiful.
