Richard’s photography sessions continue on occasional Wednesdays 2-4pm. Ask Andy for forthcoming dates.

The weather at the Dove Valley Centre was mixed, but we enjoyed writing with Sarah in some unusual formats and making mini ‘Whispers in the Grass’ books. For a few of the poems, visit Gordon’s blog and see ‘Voices from a Field’ http://creepingtoad.blogspot.com/

People were initially hesitant about how to make pop-up cards, but Gavin brushed away doubts. Folk either combined the pop-up mechanisms with recycled cards or added their own illustrations, and were rightly pleased with the results.

The proposed bring-&-share BBQ courtesy of Bob & Jackie was rained off on July 30th. We hope for better weather on 6th August. Andy will make a final decision on Sunday 4th. Failing that, we’ll do something at Back Dane Cottage on 27th.
