The Knit and Natter group hope to resume on Tuesday 29th June when all legal limits on social contact have been removed.   Watch this space for more details.

Subject to further Covid advice the dates for the rest of 2021 are as follows:

27 June / 31 August / 28 Sept / 26 Oct  / 30 Nov / 21 Dec.

All dates are 2 – 4 pm in St Richard’s Hall, Swallowfield Road.

The knitting has carried on regardless of Covid and not being able to natter. That said, we are all looking forward to meeting again in person and swapping our lockdown stories over exceedingly good cake, with a nice cuppa.

Just before Easter we delivered Easter Bunny gifts to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Neonatal unit for the Spring Babies.  As well as being delighted at the Easter gifts, Sister Teri Stimson was grateful to have some new bespoke mitts and red hats.  The unit uses red hats for babies who need extra observations.

We have also made another donation of storks to the London Ambulance Service and these will be given to babies during their Neonatal Transfer.

Although we specialise in charity knits, one of our knitter undertook a commission from a very eminent puppeteer – a bespoke Lamb Chop puppet. The proceeds have been donated to CCRA to support our fantastic activities.

If you want to know more about how you can contribute to the charity sector, learn to knit or have a project in mind then contact Brenda on 07909 090 676 or email
