Connie Rees discusses the Mothers' Club and Eight O'Clock Club in Bedwell [Text only]

There was community associations. I started the Mothers’ Club in Stevenage because in the very early days the mothers said they didn’t have anywhere to go. And so I started the Mothers’ Club and we used to have speakers and then, many years later, the same women came to me and said, “Look, we are middle aged, there is lots done for the elderly, a lot done for the young in the town Mrs Rees, could you not start something for us?” I said to my daughter, the one in Oxford, “I wonder what I could call it?” and she said “What time do you meet mum?” I said “8 o’clock”, she said “Call it the 8 O’clock Club!” and I did. I don’t know if it is still going but I started that in Bedwell for middle aged women who were mainly mothers in the early days when we started the Mothers’ Club.
