Bee Crafty workshop


A new craft group in Royston is going down a storm after being set up as part of the North Herts CVS Love Your Neighbourhood Campaign.

The free Bee Crafty workshops are being held at Coombes Community Centre in Burns Road on the first and third Tuesday of every month.

Jenny Veale, who runs the workshops, said: “At our first session we learned how to do various techniques using inks and stencils. “Everyone had a really enjoyable time, no one wanted to leave at the end of the afternoon.”

Each week visitors get the chance to learn and try out new techniques or they are free to sit and watch – the group is very informal with no previous experience needed.

The next workshop will be held on Tuesday, September 15 at 2pm in the Harris Room.

For more information, contact Jenny on 07855323052 or email

Alternatively, feel free to drop in on one of the informal meetings.
