Choir – January 2017

Christmas Crackers – December 2016

December saw our ladies making Christmas Crackers with one of our WI members, Sara Lawton. Sara showed us two styles of making crackers for the festive period. We made a sparkly cracker and a Rudolf cracker, and we even made our own jokes to go inside. One was a little more fiddly than the other […]

Race Night – June 2016
