The Weaving Group meets in the Mary Tavy Coronation Hall once a month on the second Friday in the month.
Since the government has relaxed laws on face mask wearing, we have decided it will be up to the individuals preference to wear one. We will still keep the hall ventilated and ask if you are able to do a lateral flow test before coming, then please do. Please respect others preferences and personal space. And finally bring your own cup.
