Programme 2020-21

SADLY, because of the covid19 pandemic, until July meetings will take place via Zoom. Joining details will be emailed to members.

Government guidelines permitting, beginning in July 2021 we will meet at Haxby MemorialHall from 11am until 3pm on the first Saturday of every month, (the August 2021, October 2021 and January 2022 meetings will be on the second Saturday). 

In general meetings begin at 11:00am, with lunch from 12:30 to 1:15. Afternoon activities will be from 1:30 to 3:00. 

The hall is large, with plenty of tables and chairs, a well equipped kitchen. The grounds include parking spaces and a garden where, in warm weather, members might like to have their lunch. Haxby is a very pleasant village with good shops including  some very nice cafes which members might like to use during the lunch break.

We also have a 'Social Stitching' virtual meet up.  Check out our Facebook page for more details.
Zoom meetings will start at 2:00pm, but log in will be available from 1:30pm. These meetings are only available to members, and joining details will be sent via email.
