ESGWSD Monthly Meetings

You are most welcome to attend any of our meetings at Ringmer Village Hall, Lewes Road, Ringmer, East Sussex BN8 5QH as a visitor (£4.00) to see how the Guild works.

The mornings are usually spent meeting and greeting friends, buying sale items and reading the notice boards.  We often hold ‘mini skills’ sessions.

Members bring their own lunches (bring your own mug if you want tea or coffee) and the meeting starts at 10.30.

The afternoon is devoted to guest speakers and presentations.
