A reminder that our annual Autumn Show will take place in the Village Hall on Saturday, 2nd September. The schedule can be downloaded by clicking HERE. But don’t forget that the event is an open show, so you don’t have to be a Member to enter. Please feel free to download a copy for yourself from the Woodborough Web, once it becomes available.

To make the Show a success, we really do need you to take part – please don’t take it for granted that the Committee or other ‘regular’ exhibitors will be able to fill the hall with exhibits. The more exhibitors we have, the better the competition becomes! As I mentioned last month, if you have, for example, a nice-looking household plant in a pot, or are handy at baking or painting, please take a look at the schedule for the most appropriate class in which to show your exhibit (and those all-important rules). If you have a family member or friend who might be interested, please let them know about the Show!

As usual, we really would like lots of children to take part in the Show, too, and every children’s entry wins a prize. All you need to do is bring it along to the Village Hall in the morning before the Show – there will be people on hand to help you place your exhibit in the correct class.

This year, the Photographic Class is on the theme of ‘Red’, in recognition of our 40th (Ruby) anniversary as a Society. Photo size 7”x 5” and not framed or mounted in any way. You may interpret the theme in any way that you like.

Exhibits need to be entered and displayed by 9.30am as judging commences at 10.00am on the day. Committee members will be on hand to help you from around 7.30am.

The Show itself will be open to the public from 14.00 p.m. – we look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible!

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.
