Our next meeting

Tuesday 9th October
According to the BBC, of all the treasures found in the ground 90% are unearthed by amateur metal detectors. For many people metal detecting is a serious hobby, the thrill of a possible interesting find must be tantalising. How do you get started? Are there any no go ares for the armature detectorist? What makes a find treasure? Beneath the ground there must be an enormous amount of history, in the mix with modern possessions carelessly lost…all there for the finding. RAY GREENACRE will be telling us all about METAL DETECTING, so please come and join us on TUESDAY 9th OCTOBER in the Chapel School Room at 7.30 pm. BRINKLOW WI will make you very welcome. Where else in Brinklow can you hear a good speaker whilst enjoying a glass of wine, for just £4?


Tuesday 2nd October at 2.30 pm in the Malt Kiln Farm Shop restaurant. Crafters, knitters, spectators all are welcome to join in a convivial afternoon and try some of the excellent refreshments on offer at Malt Kiln.
