Our next meeting

Tuesday 11th December

It’s Christmas – well nearly! So much to do and organise for the forthcoming festivities, and with this in mind on Tuesday 11th December Alan Keetch from Thoughtfully Wrapped in Stratford will be demonstrating how to wrap all those Christmas presents to make them look seasonal and interesting.
Now is your chance to elevate the look of your gifts, if you have always been a wrapping paper, sellotape and gift tag type, this could be for you. But the evening is not over, next we will tickle the taste buds by tasting a range of minced pies, whilst quaffing a glass of wine, of course. Santa will be lurking, but secretly, so please bring a gift to the value of £3 or thereabouts if you want to join in. It all happens in the Chapel School Room. Visitors are welcome to join us and the cost for visitors will be £4.
Happy Christmas to everyone from Brinklow WI.

KNIT and NATTER

Will be on Tuesday 4th December at 2.30pm in the Malt Kiln Farm Shop restaurant. Crafters, knitters and spectators all are welcome to come along and join in. Please note there will be no Knit and Natter in January because it is New Years day!!
