This month’s Crafty Girl’s Night Out is skipping to the second Wednesday of the month (10th July) because the bees are taking over the Hub!
Jan Doyle from Newbury and District Beekeepers’ Association will be coming to talk about all aspects of honeybees from pollinators, to providers of medicine and honey. Find out the ways in which the beekeeper looks after them and what we in turn can do to help.
There will be a Q&A at the end of the talk and, best of all, honey tasting!
This is an event arranged by Hungerford Summer Festival and tickets are free, although there will be a retiring collection.

Thank you everyone who came to the new ArtSpace in the Hub yesterday, our monthly drawing workshop – and thank you to Shirley Cartey for providing such a beautiful and varied collection of pots and vases to draw. The group dabbled with pencil, charcoal and even collage, working from different angles and producing both quick, spontaneous sketches and longer, more considered drawings.
The next ArtSpace is on Sunday 3rd February, 2-5pm, when we will be drawing organic shapes – plants and driftwood. Everyone is welcome – even those who say they can’t draw! Bring your own materials if you wish but there will be plenty of paper, pencils, charcoal etc to try out. Tickets are £10, including refreshments.
