Stow & District Pensioners Society

The Stow and District Pensioners’ Society is open to all persons over the age of 60. The annual membership fee is only £2 per year.

The Society has existed since 1947 and is a Registered Scottish Charity which is run by a committee of volunteers. We are always happy to receive offers of help and donations of cake, candy and items to sell or raffle at our fundraising events. If you are a good home baker – we would love to hear from you.

We always welcome new members and anyone who could volunteer some of their time to help at our fund raising events.

For more information please phone Marion Johnston on 01578 730294 or Meg Stewart on 01578 730378.

We organise a variety of events to finance the annual christmas party and all day trips

Coffee Mornings
We organise two annually in March and September. They are tremendously good value for money and you can enjoy delicious home baking.

Sales of Work
All are welcome every March and September to browse and purchase from our traditional stalls – such as Cake-and-Candy, Tombola, and Bric-a-Brac.

All Day Trips
Over the years we have visited a variety of places – Callender, Ayr, Largs and the award-winning visitor centre at New Lanark. We stop for refreshments en route and later on we have a delicious High Tea.

Annual Christmas Party
We serve a traditional Christmas meal and there is a free Raffle of donated prizes. The Junior Red Cross organise gifts of grocery parcels for all the pensioners.

    Good (Insert time here)

    I have recently moved into the Stow area, and as a man in my early 80’s I am a big fan of old people (including myself). I have lived here for 1 month now and have been increasingly lonely. Are there any ways in which I could meet people of a similar age, without too much strenuous activity. When I lived in Telford I was a member of the local knitting society and I would like to know whether there are similar societies in this area. I am also a big fan of wildlife watching so would like to know where the best areas are locally and who I should get in touch with to further my interest.

    Kind Regards, George Winsall
