SPRUCING UP OUR FABULOUS GARDEN AT THE CATER MUSEUM FOR A REALLY WILD DAY ON SATURDAY 11 APRIL - WHY NOT BECOME A "FRIEND"
Visitors to our beautiful little museum in Billericay High Street will be entranced with our garden at the rear of the building.  Everything is coming to life in this pretty part of the town.  Why not come along to meet our Mayflower Morrismen, folk from the Essex Badger Conservation group, learn a little about bee-keeping and bring your knitting needles, too. Yep - we're going to knit a critter (with help, of course). It's going to be fun and we look forward to meeting our wildlife enthusiasts - oh, and there's an awful lot of fascinating artefacts stored in the upstairs rooms - lots to see and do! Join us.

VICTORIOUS VICTORIA - PROUD OF YOU

Cooking, wine-making, preserving are my hobbies, but never would I put myself under the pressure our SWWJ president, Victoria Wood, experienced this evening.

But, her skill was evident and she won!  Great viewing and lots of money was raised for Red Nose Day and Comic Relief.
