Free machine embroidery @ The Mix, Wantage
Jun 23 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Free machine embroidery @ The Mix, Wantage | England | United Kingdom

You will begin by practicing “drawing” with the needle on paper and progress to fabrics. No experience is necessary. 


 

Woolton Hill Village Market @ Woolton Hill Church Hall
Jun 23 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Woolton Hill Village Market @ Woolton Hill Church Hall | Woolton Hill | England | United Kingdom

Our Market has been running for over seven years, and offers fantastic produce, arts and crafts, and an opportunity for friends and neighbours to meet over a cup of tea! We boast a great selection of things to eat, try and buy. The choice of food, dependent on the line up for each market, includes high-welfare pork, beef, lamb, venison and charcuterie; fresh Devon fish; organic bread and cakes; tasty cheese; home-made ready meals and deli goods; hand-made chocolate and pure coffee.

We also run our community stalls, selling fresh fruit and vegetables, local eggs, English cut flowers and cooked refreshments – bacon, chipolata or pulled pork rolls – with any profits contributing to the running of the Market, or going towards our ‘Charity of the year’ donation.

Visitors can also browse accessories; well-being products; toys; cards; plants and crafts; demos and meet local charities or community groups. Our children’s activity is always busy. While the youngsters are amused with arts and crafts, the parents can catch up with friends! The popular tea room, selling home-made cakes and proper tea and coffee, and the raffle, are always busy and offer opportunities to raise money for good causes.

Come along to the Village Hall on the last Saturday of most months (there are no markets in August and December) between 10am and 1pm, for a friendly welcome and some lovely things to tempt you and the family!
