Online Knit and Natter weekly from Weds 18th March 2020 7-8pm 













Join us for an online Knit and Natter via Zoom video conferencing.  Bring your knitting, a cuppa and a nice bit of cake!

Only £2,  which we will donate to the local food bank.

We plan to make this a weekly event during the Covid 19 outbreak when more of us are at home but who knows, it

may become a longer term thing if it works.  You will be sent an invite to the event when you have booked via your

email address so if you use a different address to your Paypal one you will need to let Janet know. 

See you there and keep on knittin,

Janet
