Meetings Schedule

Meetings are on Tuesdays, from 1.00pm until 3.00pm unless otherwise announced.
The first part of any normal meeting will usually consist of a short session of
group housekeeping matters and then into the following programme of events.
Where it reads ‘Manuscript’, we mean it is a sharing of work with the group on a given theme, or anything that you would like to read out and receive comments.

    Really good fun meeting 18th November who would have guessed refuse collection could bring out so much frivolous creativity. Must delve into rubbish more often.

    • Thanks Kate and it can only get better with the great group of members that can hopefully bring in new ones too!

        Is abduction allowed? On numerous occasions I have chatted to people and they have seemed interested, to the point of saying that they would turn up at the next meeting (one or two local enough to me that I offered a lift) but have never been seen. Perhaps I scared them but who can tell? Maybe kidnap/abduction is the way to go. (in case you missed the obvious….only joking) 😉

  3. You know Kate, I think that might be the best idea we have had….also joking….perhaps! There has to be a way!
