The Cotton Millers Club AGM with Entertainment

The Cotton Millers Club: a monthly club for adults with learning difficulties.

The Cotton Millers club was set up in October 2000 as part of the community work of Holymoorside United Reformed Church.

It is a monthly club for adults with learning difficulties in Holymoorside and Chesterfield which meets in the United Reformed Church Hall in Holymoorside. In the summer months extra activities are organised away from the Church Hall.

The aim of the Club is to provide a friendly atmosphere for up to twenty such people to 'get out of the house' and mix with other people, to offer them a variety of stimulating and enjoyable activities.

The club is led by the 'members' as much as possible . In October each year we hold a club AGM at which we summarise the years events, present the accounts, and decide on future events for the coming year.

The £50 purchased two goats from Oxfam to be given to a family in Africa. The African family will be able to breed the goats, to use their milk, and to use their manure to help grow vegetables.Picture showing Peter Charles singing at the Cotton Millers AGM along with Cotton Millers dancing
