21 May: Unseen UK

This month we have a talk from Unseen UK, who are a charity working towards a world without slavery, through working in partnership with communities, business, governments and other organisations to help stamp out slavery for good. They also provide victims of trafficking, with the safety, hope and choice they deserve.

We are looking forward to hearing all about the work they do to eradicate slavery in UK.

Review April: Embroidery with Jemima Lumley

Review Mar: Music Therapy

16 Apr: Embroidery with Jemima Lumley

Time for some craft and with former member and local jewellery designer, Jemima Lumley, who’ll be showing us how to create a beautiful embroidered appliqué piece that can be framed. We’ll have all the materials you’ll need but if you can bring along a basic sewing kit (with a needle suitable for embroidery) that will be helpful.

19 Mar: Music Therapy

Come along to find out how music and music therapy can support mental health and wellbeing, we’ll have a talk and an interactive session – no musical ability required!

Review Feb: Regifting auction and Swishing

Review Jan: Sign ups and inspirational talk

19 Feb: Re-gifting auction and swishing

Have an unwanted present? Been doing a bit of decluttering and now have items that no longer spark joy in your life (fans of Marie Kondo will know what we mean by that!)? Bring them along to add to February’s swishing* and re-gifting auction!

We’ll start with the re-gifting where we’ll auction off your unwanted gifts with all proceeds going to our nominated charity. Then we’ll have the swishing towards the end of the night.

*Wondering what swishing is? Bring along some clothes or accessories you no longer want and swap them for something someone else has bought along!

Review December: Xmas bring a dish party!

Thanks to everyone who came along to the Xmas bring a dish party. Such wonderful food from our talented members, and a great night had by all – especially handbag bingo!

Thanks to our wonderful president, Alison Bingham for another great year.
