The events will be held between 10am and 12noon at:

•November 3 - Pinewood Community Hall, Laburnum Close, Ipswich

•November 17 - Capel St Mary Library, The Street, Capel St Mary

•November 24 - Brantham Village Hall, New Village, Brantham, Manningtree

“We’re looking forward to hosting our final three events this year and would like to invite as many people as possible to join us at the location most convenient for them.”
