Wartime messages

HEARTFELT messages during wartime are the subject of the next Ponteland Embroiderers’ Guild meeting on Monday.

Pat Ashton-Smith will give an illustrated talk called Love Letters from the Front. She has many examples of the embroidered postcards from the First World War.

The event will take place at St Mary’s Church Hall in Thornhill Road, from 2pm.

Visitors are welcome at a small charge. Coffee or tea will be available after the talk.

For more information telephone Sheila Armstrong on 0191 266 7873.
