Knitters are asked to bring along double knitting wool and size 8 (4 mm) needles. They will cast on 28 stitches and then knit for one hour. They are then invited to continue knitting in their own time until the strip measures 40 inches. The strips will then be made into blankets for the needy. Sponsor forms are available from the Parish Church, the Baptist Church or from Julie Hudson at the Methodist Church. We are hoping once again to raise £1000 for Christian Aid. Everyone can help: if you cannot knit please sponsor us generously! A cream tea will be served on 17 March from 3pm: all are welcome to attend and to contribute to the charity.
