Woodborough Ladies

Our speaker in May was Tony Waltham, with his subject “ The Sinking of Venice”. He not only showed some lovely pictures of Venice, but as a knowledgeable geologist gave some very interesting facts about how much it had sunk and the problems of it having been built without solid foundations  He had travelled around the world and seen similar problems in Brazil, California and other areas.

On Thursday June 6th at 8pm in The Institute our speaker is Sarah Cotton, a MacMillan Nurse. Do come and hear about her dedicated work supporting patients with cancer and their families

The Crafty Chatters

A new craft group has been set up in Lowdham, meeting every Friday, 1.00pm till 4.30pm in the W.I. Hall, Lowdham.
Sessions cost £3 which includes tea/coffee and biscuits/cake. We would like crafters from all disciplines to come along and enjoy an afternoon chatting and crafting.
For those who sew we’ll have a sewing machine or two and an ironing board, knitters bring your needles and crocheters bring your hooks, colourers bring a pencil sharpener and ruggers bring your frames.
It will be a great opportunity to share knowledge and pick up tips, plus you might get inspiration to try a new craft! Open to all ages and all crafters. Phone Jane Waite 07985293351 or 01159 664907 if you have any questions.
