We are a group of ladies who are interested in various crafts and we meet once a week and bring our projects along and have a cuppa and company and swap ideas. The crafts vary but the main interests are knitting, sewing, quilting and patchwork, tapestry, needlepoint and crochet. If we feel like experimenting with a new craft or want to try something new, there is usually someone there who can help, advise or set you on the right track. We have had someone painting Christmas lights and another lady did papercraft. Who knows what you can start?
We usually stop the club for the summer as some of our ladies help on farms and with holidays, and one thing and another attendance is too low to warrant the hall, but this year we are starting up again the first Wednesday in October 2019. If you would like to come and try is out, we would love to see you, new faces are always welcome. We meet every Wednesday from 1-4 pm but there is no obligation to stay for the whole three hours or to even come every week, but we do luckily have a core of members who do come most weeks and it helps to keep costs down.
To join, we charge £5 but that is £2.50 joining fee and £2.50 weekly subscription included. It is just £2.50 when you come with no payments for absences, so you can see it’s good to have a few regulars. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided bring your own projects and expertise. We sometimes meet up and go to the large craft shows and it’s a great way to make new friends, and meet people with the same interests. We love what we do and have fun while we do it!! Do come along, we would love to meet you!

The Brompton Regis Village Lunch takes place on the last Friday of each month (apart from August and December) and is provided for the local community in the village and surrounding areas.
The normal cost for a 2-course lunch is £6.00. The standard of the food is excellent and am sure that everyone who attends would agree that it is extremely good value for money.
The lunch is held in the Village Hall and is run totally by volunteers. The volunteers are a major part of this venture and without them, the lunch would not take place. Some volunteers help with the food preparation and cooking, some with the set-up and others with the clearing up after the meal has finished.
We are always in need of new people to help and if you would like to get involved, either with the cooking or set-up/clearing up we would very much like to hear from you.
Should you wish to join in, we do normally have a limited number of seats available.
Please contact Kim on 01398 371312.
