Battle Hill & Linskill Community Development Grapevine Newsletter – 26 May 2023


We love how our program never looks the same! Not only did we have our usual weekly classes running, this week we enjoyed a book making session with Amy, top tips with gardening expert Mike, a trip to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and making our own soap with Eileen. Phew – we need this long weekend to recover! 

Things are a little quieter next week as it is the school holidays, making it the perfect time to read Barbara Robson’s ‘Songs of my life’. Barbara is a member of The Scribblers creative writing group and you can read her story by clicking on the link below.
