West NorfolkMessage from Stephanie: will not be opening the Woolshack on 29th October 2021. Our next Woolshack will be Friday 26th November 2021 and although we will still be limited to 30, we will serve refreshments and you will be able to stay for a while. There will be no Woolshack in December, the next one after that will be Friday 28th January 2022. I do apologise for all the chopping and changing and hope we can get to some sort of better routine in 2022.
