Sorry I am just learning how to update this - so will post a more up-to-date newsletter/blog for 2017 shortly!
It was October - nights are drawing in, and it's time for a warm, creative and enjoyable evening with EEWI. This month, Jill will be guiding us in making lino cuts, so bring an apron or a big shirt to cover and protect clothes.
We meet next on Tuesday, 18th October at St Margaret's Hall, 7.00 for 7.30 start. Any contributions of refreshments are welcomed. Natasha will be far away on the other side of the States, and Sioban will be hosting for the evening.
We will be collecting gifts for U-Turn - these are always appreciated and this is our last opportunity to show our support before the project closes. We are all invited to their party on 7th December 12- 4 p.m., with lunch served about 1.00 p.m. We can help make it something special, giving everyone the opportunity to say 'Goodbye'.
