Time to Talk Day

Time to Talk DayOn 2nd February was Time to Talk Day and the Library hosted a craftercise lunchtime. There was paper folding, colouring in, beginners learning to knit, and expert knitters conducting a masterclass. All accompanied by plenty of chat.

Comments ranged from, “who’s got the red pencil?” to “I’ve learnt a new skill!” and most commonly, “when can we do this again?” So, it is proposed that we do a monthly lunchtime activity. Suggestions ranged from walking (when the weather is good), to visiting an exhibition in one of the museums, cake decorating and a game of Frisbee in the park. In the meantime there is still demand to keep the craft club going so the next meeting will be in March.
