Our next meeting

Tuesday 12th February

The rhythmic beat of Brazil is coming to Brinklow soon, a SAMBA EXPERIENCE is planned on TUESDAY 12th FEBRUARY at 7.30pm in the Chapel School Room in Broad Street.
COVENTRY SAMBA DRUMMERS will start off by playing one or two of their “grooves”, then it is participation time for all.
No musical experience needed so there is no excuse not to get with the beat and take part. Different types of drums, bells, shakers etc will be provided, anyone can do it and it’s a great way to relieve stress, whilst having a bit of a work out at the same time.
Guaranteed to bring a smile to your face and get those toes tapping. Just the thing to brighten up a cold February evening, so come on down and take part. It will all be helped along (or hindered) by the usual liquid refreshment!! Visitors are very welcome to join in, should be a good evening.


Tuesday 5th February at 2.30pm in the Malt Kiln Farm Shop restaurant. Crafters, Knitter, spectators all are welcome
to join in a convivial afternoon and to try some of the excellent refreshments on offer at Malt Kiln.
