Admssion is £1. All children are admitted free.

During July, the WI Craft Group made a trip to the village of Beckford, near Evesham, to visit a family-run silk firm.

The highly-skilled and artistic team at Beckford Silk designed and created beautiful scarves and ties which are in much demand at museum and art gallery shops around the country.

The attention to detail was fascinating to see.

Members watched the process of hand-blocking intricate patterns, some involving up to nine colour runs. Afterwards, there was a visit to Tewkesbury Abbey.

‘Ideas with Lavender’ will be the topic at the Craft Group session on Friday, October 4.

The next meeting will be on Thursday, September 12 at 7.30pm when Dr Colin Harris will be speaking about ‘Yesteryear’s Folk lore’.

On October 10, J Christopher will talk about the ‘History of Pottery and Albrighton Pottery’.

Visitors are always welcome. Either just turn up on the day or contact Toni Allison 884079 for more information.
