♀Connected Community

 

EVERY WEDNESDAY  10:00-12:30

£2.50 per session including refreshments.
There may occasionally be an additional small charge for specialised materials.

There’s always something fun and exciting happening at Trowbridge Women's Shed.  As well as joining in with a range of activities and enriching programs, it's also a great opportunity to come and have some breathing space, and meet old and new friends over a cuppa.  We like to keep our members informed about what’s happening at our Centre and what’s going on in the community.

We are welcoming and inclusive, and we aim to create a connected community where women are empowered to pursue their interests.

Below is a list of planned activities and events which we will build upon as more members join.  We look forward to seeing you!
