Bits & Pieces

Every month we hold a meeting for members to present projects that they have been working on. This gives the opportunity for individuals to demonstrate the work that they have done and discuss how they have progressed, along with gaining advice from other members if issues have been encountered.

Presentations given by members are scored by attendees and the totals are cumulated through the year, with the winner receiving a cup at the end of the year.

Dates and times of the Bits and Pieces meetings are contained within our Calendar.

These are just a few of our previous Bits and Pieces items –
