Crafts/Gardens

LALG CLOCK GROUP

We service and repair clocks under our tutor Richard Edwards with the assistance of Bernard Bailey.
Sessions begin with a short presentation on theory followed by practical work on members’ own mechanical clocks.
We meet once a week during term time on Wednesdays, 7.00pm to 9.30pm, at Mrs Howard Memorial Hall in central Letchworth (free parking).
We are recruiting now for the autumn term (10 Sept - 18 Dec excuding 30 Oct).

The cost is £84 for 14 sessions. Beginners and more experienced horologists are welcome.

We meet every 2 weeks on  Monday afternoons at The Cloisters, 36 Barrington Road, Letchworth. We are a very enthusiastic group who enjoy making pretty arrangements. Our skills vary considerably from complete novices to almost professional. If you would like to know more please call or email the group contact Angie  angielockyeris@icloud.com or 01462 893441

We are a group of enthusiastic gardeners who visit each other's gardens and exchange information over coffee. The only criterion for membership is to have your own garden.

We visit each other’s gardens, usually meeting once a month to view the garden and discuss gardening topics over a cup of tea or coffee.

Unfortunately we are unable to accept new members at present. Although this group is currently full, new groups are being formed as existing ones fill up, so please contact William Armitage 07890 709462 about the possibility of setting up a new Gardening Tea and Tips group.

We are a friendly group whose visits and social activities are mainly, but not exclusively, concerned with garden visits/gardening/countryside.

We have a varied and interesting programme for the coming year.

If you would like to find out more please ring Susan Mellor on 01462 456486.

New members are always very welcome - you don’t need a garden to join our group!
