Music Appreciation (Tuesday) – September meeting

In September Peter presented the programme of music which was dedicated to Dick Myrton, who hosted the group meetings with Sue back in 2000.  Dick attended the group over the last sixteen years and we will miss his genial presence.  It was lovely to have Sue with us just a few days after Dick’s funeral.

Ukulele – September meetings

After a wonderful Beatles session, strumming through some fantastic 60s melodies from the Fab Four, we followed up with a collection of pre-Beatles songs, going back as far as the 1920s.  Although some of our number are fairly new to the Ukulele, we now feel we can offer ourselves as an entertainment act, ideally to […]

Card Craft (No 2) – September meetings

Patchwork & Quilting (No 1) – September meetings

We had a relatively quiet month in September, just getting on with our own projects and sorting out our lovely offerings for our stand at the Open Morning next month.  We did have a welcome visit from our patchwork and quilting friend Jenny, who brought along lots of fabrics to sell after retiring earlier this year. […]

Bird Watching (Monday) – October meeting

We are a local (within one hour’s drive of Market Harborough) birdwatching group who try to help each other improve our identification skills and which beginners are very welcome to join.  Our 2016 annual species list stands at eighty-nine so far.  For a variety of reasons and for the third month running there was no […]
