The Craft Group continues to meet monthly on the first Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm in the Tea Room.

A charge of £5 per session includes a hot drink and slice of the wonderful Oak Tree Farm cake.

February’s meeting saw us making heart-shaped brooches, ideal for Valentine’s Day or as a Mothers’ Day gift, or to keep for ourselves.

In March we will be making paper bead jewellery and the programme for the rest of the year is below.

Do come along and join us, you can join in with the topic for the evening or bring your own project to work on with like-minded friends.

Team Members' Bike-a-Thon

Team Members' Bike-a-Thon

Our Team Members also wanted to join in with the fundraising activities and chose to do a sponsored cycle ride.  They took it in turns to cycle on a static exercise bike outside our tea room with the aim of completing a total of at least 30 miles each day, they smashed this and completed 176 miles over the week. They raised a total of £357 which will be split between Oak Tree Farm and Our Space Adventure Playground in Newcastle.  Thank you to everyone who supported us and sponsored our Team Members.
