Content DescriptionThere is one volume of Ladies' League reports. The League started in 1933 and the last formal report of its meetings was in 1935, which specified the intention to continue meeting. A note from 1995 implies it was still holding meetings fortnightly, although the whereabouts of any records are unknown.

In 1960 the church voted to hold special weekly gatherings for women, the 'Friendship Club', with one meeting a month joining with the Men's Club. The Club voted to disband from April 1995 after 35 years, owing to fall in attendance and the increasing infirmity of the remaining members. The two volumes span the entirity of the club's existence.

There was a third group set up in 1988, the Boundary Road Friendship & Leisure Group for the over-50s (later called 'Mind Alive'), though the only records from this are some ephemera contained within the scrapbooks at MS 900/N.
