UPDATE: THE SPRING FLOWER FESTIVAL 2022
28 May 2022
What an amazing weekend we had in the setting of the beautiful Holy Trinity Church Centre, resplendent in metres of bunting, silk roses and swags of white wisteria. The doors opened at 10:30am on Saturday 30th April, and a warm welcome given by our Mayor Cllr Denise Bates. The stream of visitors over the weekend browsed the stalls of local artisan crafters, and enjoyed mouth-watering refreshments in our cafe before heading off with home. See the full report on the Spring Flower Festival Page.

CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL ST JAMES'
30 November - 4 December 2021
We’ve been making dolly-peg angels and shepherds, and Jenny has been knitting sheep with rainbow blankets to decorate our tree for the wonderful Christmas Tree Festival over at St James’ Church. Our theme is "While Shepherds Watched their Flocks by Night." There are sixty trees from local churches, businesses, schools and community groups. Admission is free. Refreshments and programmes are available for a small donation. The money raised is being given to Breakthrough Homeless Day Centre who help the homeless and the charity, Stand By Me, a charity which helps children in need overseas.
13 November and 12th December 2021
We are having a stall at the Weavers Market to raise funds for the Women's Shed. We will be selling handmade cards and crafts. It would be great if some of our members could help on the stall.
LINK WITH THE MEN'S SHED

The Men's Shed welcomes you to their workshop and will provide a tutor for a group of four, so if you're interested, please speak to the Team and we will make a list and arrange a slot for you.
They charge £3.50 per session to cover their costs plus materials. For example, to make a bird box will cost you £2.50 for the wood and screws.

It was great to welcome you all to the Taster Day. We hope you were inspired to think about what you might like to try out, or to bring your own project next time.
