Rubbish Friends

There is an idea to have a get together to pick up the rubbish in the village on a regular basis. The scheme called ‘rubbish friends’ involves walking through the village collecting rubbish.

Craft and Coffee Club

The Great Babraham Sewing Bee is about to happen! unlike the version on tv, this isn’t a competition, and it’s about more than sewing…. come along to the George on Wednesdays between 3 and 4 pm and Thursdays between 10.30 and 11.30 am to stitch, chat and have coffee. You can learn to knit or sew – there will be a selection of needles and wool for beginners – or bring along your own craft project. All ages are welcome and we’re starting on Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th February.

Any queries, see Clare at 1 Oak Lane.
