FOCAL 100 Club

From September FOCAL will be holding a monthly 100 Club draw. Welcome to the Focal 100 Club!  It is a great way to support your local library while having a bit of a flutter!  Here’s how it works. You agree to pay £2.00 per month or £24.00 per annum. This buys you one membership number which is entered in the monthly draw. (of course you can always buy more membership numbers if you wish!) All participants must be over 16 years of age. The draw will take place on the last day of the month.

Knitting for Refugees

The knitting group meets in the Methodist Hall on the first and third Monday in September, October and November between 2.30 pm and 4.00 pm. This is a very informal group who knit squares for blankets or other much needed items, for refugees. We also enjoy a chat and a cup of tea. If you would prefer not to knit, but would rather sew squares together, that too would be very welcome. We are always grateful for double knitting wool, of any colour other than white, and size 8 needles.  Drop in and see what we do and just sit and have a cup of tea with us!
