We are a friendly group of mainly, but not solely, women who are interested in developing our skills in making textiles through the use of natural fibres and the traditional skills of spinning, weaving, dyeing and felting. We can lend equipment and you will find that there is always someone willing to show you how it works and to help sort out problems. Visitors and long term members are always welcome.
We meet every Wednesday (Except August) Weavers 09.00am — 04.00 pm in room 2. Spinners 09.00 — 12.00 noon in the Hilary Christy Room

The club was formed in 1975, since when meetings have been held every Thursday, except occasionally during Christmas week. We meet in Greyfriars at 10.00 am for coffee (or tea) and discussion; the subjects are wide-ranging, sometimes of World or National importance to the light-hearted with an occasional touch of hilarity. If you would like more information, please telephone or call in one Thursday morning to look us over? On joining, members must also take up membership of Greyfriars.

One group meets on Wednesday afternoons from 2.00 – 4.00 pm year round, to read a wide range of plays for pleasure. Please contact Russell Webb (01425 476618). email@example.com
Another group also meet on Wednesdays from 3.30 – 5.30 pm to do the same. Please contact Chris Wightman (01425 475082).
In a convivial atmosphere, we aim to read a play a week. Play sets borrowed from Winchester discovery Centre, via Ringwood Library, include the classical greats of European literature(notably, Anouilh, Checkhov, Ibsen, Shaw and Wilde) together with contributions from contemporary writers (e.g. Alan Bennett, Agatha Christie, Noel Coward, Somerset Maughn, Arthur Miller John Osborne, Harold Pinter, J B Priestley, Emlyn and Tennesse Williams). Thus all aspects of drama are covered – tragedy, mystery, comedy – and the cathartic or joyful effects are fully appreciated by the readers whose nuanced reactions to the text ensure that each play becomes alive and meaningful. If anyone would like to join us (no experience necessary, just enthusiasm!) please contact Russell on the phone number or e mail above.
We are a friendly club that welcomes new players and visitors. If you need a partner, we will do our best to organise one. Our afternoon session usually lasts until about 4.00pm and the evening until 10.00pm We pause for tea and coffee on each session.
