Today Old Buckenham Women's Institute held a craft day in the village hall. It was a chance for people to come along and learn new skills, practice old ones and meet other people in a convivial atmosphere. There were several things to try - parchment craft, making a notice board, pewter work, making a Christmas decoration or producing a decorative cover for a notebook.
There was time for lunch, jacket potato with various fillings and salad followed by homemade apple pie with ice cream.
This was an event open to anyone but the participants were virtually all members of local WIs. All went home clutching something they had made during the day and obviously feeling a little more crafty.
