Creative Days at the Meeting House
We will again be running Creative Days at the Meeting House. A bread and soup lunch will be provided. These days give opportunities for Ffriends to concentrate on their own creative project and/or help with a number of creative activities, including card making, knitting and sewing, to support a peace project. You can drop in for an hour or two or come for the whole day. We are sorry that the car park is not available during the day on weekdays but perhaps you could come by bus or maybe a Ffriend would give you a lift. Please come and join us if you can.
