Our next meeting

Tuesday 9th July

Busy day on TUESDAY 9th JULY for Brinklow WI members. We have been invited to to Frankton to see the home of the Browning family, hope we can find it, we know from our March meeting when Gill was telling us all about it, that it is
underground! Then back to the CHAPEL SCHOOL ROOM for a summer supper at 7.30 pm. Always a convivial event with lots of goodies to eat. In amongst all this we start to make our entry for the Brinklow Scarecrow weekend. A challenging,
interesting and hopefully not exhausting day. Visitors are welcome to join us from 7.30pm for the supper etc., washed down with a glass or two no doubt, cost £4 ….a bargain.

KNIT and NATTER

Tuesday 2nd July in the Malt Kiln farm shop restaurant, from 2.30pm. Come along and join the group of crafters, and enjoy the chatter over a cup of Malt Kilns best. Hope to see you there.
