Friday Group

Some pictures from this week's Friday Group. Why not come along and join us next Friday?  - anytime between 10 and 12 noon.

Rosemary brought along some patterns for baby blankets. For some it was a chance to refresh their rather rusty knitting skills, for others a chance to learn a new stitch or two. Great fun to knit and natter - though I did find that the nattering sometimes got in the way of the knitting. I kept losing count of my knits and purls, and I think I unravelled as much as I knitted!


Other learned to play crib. By the end the novices said they were beginning to get the hang of it, but there were a lot of furrowed brows...

Friday Group - a great start

 We had a good start to our new Friday Group (we might think of a better name for it one day!). About a dozen people came, enjoyed coffee, cake and a natter.

We mended the village bunting so it would look good for the Queen's 90th Birthday Street Party on Sat June 11 (put the date in your diaries!).

We also thought about what we might like to do in this group in the future, and wrote down our ideas as we chatted. We thought we might do some gardening - planting up pots for the school - and have some outings too. There might also be some play/ poetry reading, art, skill sharing in computers/tablets/mobiles, games and various other ideas. We also thought we might organise some outings.    

Next week, some of the group are going to teach us some card games to play,  and we're going to do some knitting - it doesn't matter what previous knowledge and experience you have; the whole point is to have some fun learning together.
This group is for all adults- not just those who are retired. If you are at home on Friday mornings and would like to come along to get to know others in Seal, just drop in. It is free, but there will be a pot for donations to cover refreshments and heating.
