Here in Bromley we have a staggering number of local clubs and societies to choose from, and this time of year is perfect to consider joining one (or more) of them.
As ever for January we've been supplied with a lot of info for each club and contact details, and The Best Of Bromley are pleased to collate them all for our beloved residents of the borough.
The Bromley Events pages have a good number of these local societies listed, and here is a taster from just a few:
The Handicraft Club meet every second Wednesday of the month, 7.30pm-10.00pm at the Assembly Rooms in Coney Hall.
They cover skills such as cross stitching, tatting, crochet, beadcraft, knitting, patchwork and card making. They welcome all abilities which is handy for most of us!

I've always been a staunch supporter of local clubs - they're a fantastic way to get involved with your community, learn new skills, or just get out and about to meet new people.
