We started in December 2019 meeting monthly on a Saturday morning from 10:30 until 12:00 for tea/coffee, cake, chat and craft.
During the pandemic we have been meeting every Saturday morning on Zoom from 10:00 (10:30 from 7th November) until 12:00 for chat and optionally sharing our current craft and cooking activities.
The last of these weekly meetings is on 11th September and we will be meeting on the third Sunday of each month from 18th September.
