The Maple Leaves

Maplesteads’ Independent Ladies Social and Dining Club


We are a new, relaxed co-operative social and dining club who are actively looking for like-minded ladies from across The Maplesteads and beyond to become members. 

We are planning to create, offer and run interesting events, activities or talks, usually on the first Thursday of each month in Great Maplestead Village Hall.

Information about our presentations can be found below. 

If you’d be interested in joining The Maple Leaves, please contact:

 Angela Davis : 01787 236 007

We look forward to welcoming you!
