Catching Fly Tippers on Bank Hill

After last month’s item on catching Bank Hill fly tippers in the act, we have had a couple couple of comments from readers – see them on the “Letters” page.

Woodborough Ladies

On April 1st we enjoyed a relaxed fun evening for our Fashion Show by Obsessions, when ladies also had the opportunity to purchase clothes, bags, jewellery etc & receive vouchers to spend at the shops. Thank you to those who supported this event.

Our next meeting is on Thursday May 2nd at 8.00pm in The Institute, when our speaker will be Tony Waltham. His topic is “The Sinking of Venice”  and we look forward to hearing this fascinating story.

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.
