Rattlesden

We are a very small branch and endeavour to meet each month on the third Wednesday afternoon.  Most months we have a speaker - sometimes a local person and it is always interesting to know more about people in our own area.  Once a year we use a meeting afternoon to visit a local garden and have a cup of tea afterwards. 

Recently we visited "The Plant Centre, Garden and Cafe" at East Bergholt.  The walk was very interesting with many varied plants and trees. Tea and cake was very enjoyable with the added bonus of being able to buy plants in the wonderful plants section.

Once a week we are involved with an after school club known as S.N.A.C. - St Nicholas After School Club.

Jolly bags have been made to go in Church - they contain little books, pencils and a soft toy to keep young children happy in a Church Service.

Hats are mainly ongoing for the Seamen's mission - we visited 2 years ago.

Breast Bags have been made for Bury hospital.

A couple of years ago we made a "Comfort Bag" for the hospice.

We are repairing the kneelers for Rattlesden Church and until last year we have hosted a tea party each Summer for parents of young children.
