Know Your Neighbours October 2013

Guest Speaker: Sue Simmons from Hobbycraft discussed the Outreach program that Hobbycraft runs, and the different area which that covers. From working with school, Scout and Guide groups, birthday parties and charities the Outreach program covers the fun of using all crafts.

She all so discussed the new Corporate program where colleagues can team build and relax, while developing key skills and creating a wonderful end product.

Hobbycraft gave away a child’s party and a crafting kit as prise draw gift.

This month saw a slight change in our entry system as we now charge a small fee  of £3 for attendees, but if it’s your first time or you bring a guest that’s new; attendance for both of you is free.

So don’t forget to bring a neighbour!
