We are currently running our 2019 Summer Painting Sessions in The Guides Hall, Crowborough TN6 1PA.

The hall is situated immediately behind the Scouts Hall in Whitehill Road. Parking is available in the Scouts Hall car park. Cars will need to display a permit which is available from Ray or Alan. The entrance to the Guides Hall can be found in School Lane which joins Whitehill Road at the right hand side of the building.

These are informal sessions, held from 9.45 to 12.15 every Friday from 24 May until 20 September (except for 26 July & 2 August). The cost is £3.00 per session. If you would like to know more about joining our group, please feel free to pop in for a chat.
