Craft Update - Visit to The Royal School of Needlework & Much More...

The Craft Group is offering to organise a visit to The Royal School of Needlework, Hampton Court on the morning of either Saturday 22nd March, or Saturday 10th May.  

Cost (up front please to Liz Alcock) £16.  

Includes 21 century sampler exhibition.

Please email (alcocks@btinternet.com) or phone (0208 343 4563) Liz to give your preference and to obtain bank details for direct payment. 

Access is on very limited days and obviously if we want to go in March, we’ll have to get a move on. Thanks folks! 


And a huge thank you to the marvelous members who encouraged, taught and persuaded the public to cover an Observation Plane at RAF Hendon last week.
