The Mary Webb Society is so pleased to be asked to take part in this event. Mary Webb will be well-represented on the day which includes something for the whole family at this historic venue, Acton Scott, near Church Stretton.
The society will be having a stall near the Old Barn with displays, books, cds and other items for sale.
Please come for a chat, we’d like that.
