May 1: Mini workshop - Stick weaving -  The Men's Shed have kindly made us a batch of sticks for stick weaving. If you are doing this mini-workshop with Lorraine bring along a crochet hook small enough to go through the hole in the top of the sticks. If you have any rug wool you would like to use, bring it along.  Otherwise, Lorraine will bring a collection for you to buy at mates rates, and the proceeds will go to our building fund.

May 9, 10, 11, We depart on Wednesday May 9, in a mini bus we are hiring, to take all seven of us on our excursion to Blue Mountains, Bathurst, Orange and Gulgong. We will be back home on Saturday May 12, ready to be spoiled on Mothers Day!
