Our next meeting

Tuesday 8th September

Brinklow W. I. is taking tentative steps towards a more normal future. Members will hopefully be having a walking Treasure Hunt later this month, following safety guidelines. W.I. talks have been arranged online by the area office for those embracing modern technology.

On September 8th we hope it might be possible to have the planned speaker talking about the renovation of Middleton Hall in Staffordshire but members are advised to keep an eye open for our usual posters to see if this will happen. Anyone wanting to check or non-members wanting to visit can call Ann on 832155. The meeting would be done with safe distancing, at this point we are not sure about being able to offer refreshments. We hope members are keeping safe and well.

KNIT and NATTER

Knit and Natter will be on 7th April , 2.30 onwards at Malt Kiln Farm for knitting, nattering or just having a cuppa.
