Catterick community facility to hold coffee morning and new craft club

A Catterick Garrison community facility will hold its next monthly coffee morning Bramble Brew on Monday from 10am until 2pm.

Bramble Woods, off Wavell Road, is a community site consisting of 3.5 acres of woodland, flower meadow, pond and allotment site which is managed by e50K.

Tea, coffee, and juice will be provided — just bring your own cup to the free event.

Amy Manuel, from e50K said: “This is a time for everyone to meet new people, relax in our lovely green space or help around the site if you wish.

“Bramble Brew runs every third Monday of the month, no matter the weather. Children and dogs are very welcome.”

The facility has also announced the launch of a crafting club which will run every Tuesday morning, during term times in Wavell Pavilion from 10am until 1130.

Amy said: “”Everyone is invited to join and share their skills, teach others a new art, have a natter and enjoy each other’s company.

“We ask you to bring your own crafts along, and we are politely requesting a small charge of £1.50 per family, so we can purchase more craft items for everyone to try.

“Refreshments are free. If craft isn’t your cup of tea,  then just come down for a cup of tea. Everyone is welcome.”

Amy added: “We absolutely encourage anyone who is new to the area to swing by, learn about everything e50K has to offer and make friends.

“We are mostly military spouses and understand it can be lonely and challenging at times.

“We offer a safe, welcoming, and inclusive space run by a friendly group of lovely people. We also have many volunteering opportunities from gardening and woodwork, to assisting with events and beekeeping.

“We are particularly proud of the craft club, as we are supporting two of our wonderful volunteers who wanted to begin their own craft event. Sophie and Bethany are very passionate, we know it will be a popular group. It’s a pleasure to be surrounded by such enthusiasm and kindness to bring our community together. We are so grateful for all our volunteers who help make Bramble Woods a special place for everyone.”
