I live in Carmarthenshire. Our local authority have, in their wisdom, decided to close all community centres etc., which is where we hold our Quilting/Patchwork classes.

Why do the government do this. They say they encourage us to not sit in front of the tv, laptops, tablets etc., yet they close the venues where we love to go.

The last class will be in March.

Sorry to vent my feelings. Our group are going to be sorry to have lost such a nice class.

What a shame Patricia. Many years ago we were turned out of our venue at very short notice. We found temporary accommadation in the local RC school dining hall.
We meet now in the Baptist Church hall, and as they also have a smaller hall some of our members meet there in the daytime.
Sometimes we cannot have the big hall if there is a church function, but so far it has worked well.
Hope you can find somewhere else soon.

That is a shame Patricia... my group meets at the local Methodist chapel...a perfect size room for us. Maybe you could find a church hall for your meetings. Best of luck in your search, and don't give up..
