Our last meeting of the year is on Tuesday.
Suriya and Kit will be demonstrating some Christmas crafts and you all get the chance to make a card and matching tag. You will also be able to practice some gift wrapping so bring something small to wrap.
If you have a Christmas craft idea you like to share then please bring it along.
As its Christmas we also have some wine and mince pies.
Make and Bakes
Sunday 30th November is the Christmas Lights on event in Hampton, and we need plenty of Makes and Bakes to sell. They can be dropped off on Sunday after 2.30pm to the stall which will be located on the Green. Please label your containers if you would like them returned.
Glenys has offered to collect any if you are not able to drop them off but please only if you really can’t deliver (call 07836 342439)
Those that have offered help will be contacted by Kit in the next couple of days and if you can’t help out but do have time to pop by and see us that would be lovely.
