We have changed the time of our meeting to 1-30 -3-30 pm which will give us the benefit
of an extra half hour of good daylight.
Members have been given a project to complete by our December meeting : to make a
Christmas tree ornament in the shape on one of the three Wise Men. Patterns and fabrics
were provided so it will be interesting to see what emerges.
A while back, we took part in the Undersea Project organised for the RNLI, knitting
fish, seaweed and miniature fishermen. We've now received photos of the finished
work in which 1000 people took part. It is a deep sea "tunnel" filled with myriads
of sea creatures and looks quite spectacular. Unfortunately, it won't be on display
at any venues near here.
The Knitting & Stitching Show will be held in Harrogate as usual in November. This
is a treasure house of craft products and we are all looking forward to it.
We visit matinees at theatres in York and Leeds and evening performances at Harrogate.
This autumn we have been to see Witness for the Prosecution at Leeds Grand and Billy
Liar at The West Yorkshire Playhouse. Further visits booked include As You Like
It and Keeping Up Appearances.
There will be a new programme in Spring which will include proposed visits to Harrogate
to see Private Lives and to York to see To Kill a Mocking Bird. If you would like
further details or a copy of the programme email:

Square Dancing. Dance every Wednesday at Woodlands Church Hall,
Wetherby Road. Time: 1.30pm -3.30pm.
There are two groups running in parallel. Monday at 4.30pm meets at St. John’s Church
Hall, Bilton, and on Thursday at Jennyfield Styan Centre at 3.30pm. Both groups last
for one hour. Breffni Groome is the qualified instructor. Cost is £45 per term and
there would be a small adjustment for late starters. However we welcome members at
any time. Why not give it a try? £5 for a ‘one off’ session.
