Events 2018. Meetings. Talks. Visits.

 

May Business Meeting. Change of venue.

Please note the change of venue and date of the next WAG business meeting to Sat 12th May at HARC.  We will be looking at the WI scrap book project done in 1965,  with a view to doing something similar in the future.

HARC opens at 10.00 am and our meeting stars at 10.30  so there is time for a coffee and a chat before we start. Bring some pound coins for the machine.

If you have not seen the scrap book before you will be pleasantly surprised so please come along.

Please remember no pens are allowed, only pencils.

Should any body needs a lift, please ask.
