Bakewell Townswomen’s Guild held its first ever meeting this week by asking ‘what makes you laugh?’.
Their guest speaker was Reverend Trevor Page, a former parish priest.
Jean Jackson, chairman of the Chesterfield Federation of Townswomen’s Guilds, said she hoped the topic showed the guild was about friendship and fun as well as lobbying.
“We don’t just sit and drink coffee and try to put the world to rights,” she said.
Meetings will be at the Town Hall on the second Tuesday of each month from 10am to noon, and can involve a speaker talking about anything that is interesting or amusing.
