If all goes well, restrictions on meeting in person will be lifted at the end of June. Hopefully this will mean that members can get together again for the July program. We’ll let you know nearer the time which activities will stay on-line and which group may be meeting in person. The dates/starting times for some of the activities may also be different to the usual regime – Watch this space!

Craft Club

Due to some scheduling challenges the July Craft Club Meeting will actually take place on the 30th June. Pending the weather, we will be meeting in the garden of one of the members at 2.30pm and start work on our contribution to the THE HARBOROUGH CROCHET CHRISTMAS TREE Project. Meeting details will be confirmed closer to the day.

Book Club Meeting at 7.30 pm Our subject for the month for July will WOMEN and so we have decided to read “The Womens Room” by Marilyn French. We’ll confirm closer to the time if the Book Club will be held via Zoom or face-to-face.

Monthly Meeting – 6pm – July is usually a holiday month without a meeting, but if the meeting restrictions should indeed be lifted and the weather plays ball we are hoping to organise a Picnic in Welland Park to get everyone together and catch up.
