Welcome to the Collectables meeting page! (Collectables includes bric a brac as well as antiques! Please read below! )
Members of the Collectables group meet once a month at the Deanery. Meetings usually take place on the second Thursday of every month as long as the venue is available. If the venue is not available members will be informed either by telephone, through the appropriate page on this website or by other means of any changes to the date of the meetings. PLEASE look carefully at the planned dates listed below*
Everyone collects things that have sentimental meaning, interest or importance to them. At our meetings as a group we examine and discuss items that we collect or have collected in the past. These items do not necessarily have to be antiques. They may be fairly modern items that are meaningful to your family and that you would like to share with us. Each member may bring along an object or a small group of objects. We take turns in displaying the objects and talking together about them.
For example in the past we have displayed collections or items involving writing materials, glass paperweights, books, pottery, scrapbooks, photographs, medals, ornaments, treen, sewing, copper and brass ware, trench art, postcards etc.
Each member does not have necessarily have to bring an item. They are still welcome to attend and take part in the discussions.
During the meeting we take afternoon tea/coffee etc. at a small cost of £2.50 each.
The group is always open to ideas and suggestions and may possibly in future arrange suitable external visits.
Do contact us if you are interested and you will be very welcome to come along to our meetings.
- The next meeting in 2018 will be held at 2 pm on Thursday 9 May, 2019 at the Deanery. This is the second Thursday in May 2019.
Later planned dates for 2018/2019 are listed on the page entitled : Dates of Future Meetings.
PLEASE NOTE: PLEASE CHECK ALL PLANNED DATES LISTED ON THIS COLLECTABLES WEBSITE SHORTLY BEFORE YOU ATTEND IN CASE OF LATE AMENDMENTS DUE TO VENUE CHANGES.
