The kitchen at Helsby is currently operating at limited capacity, please bring your own mug, we will provide the tea, coffee and, of course, biscuits. Members will need to take all rubbish home with them

We have an area were members can share what they have made since they last visited (we are looking forward to a very full display of your lockdown work very soon). Ann, our Librarian, will also have the our library of books on display to tempt you, please make sure all borrowings are recorded before you borrow a book.

We always have a raffle at meetings. Our raffle queen, Muriel, will visit all tables with tickets which are 50p each. Muriel is always looking for good quality contributions to our raffles (no tat please … although tatting is ok)

Yvonne (our former Programme Secretary) had an excellent programme of speakers lined up to visit us in 2020. Jayne, our new Programme Secretary, is currently working through the details to confirm our programme for the next year, we will include details here as soon as they are available.

Non NCLG members are very welcome to join us at any of our meetings
