The knitting group meets in the Methodist Schoolroom on the first and third Monday of the month  from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm. Should it be that you were able to do some knitting during ‘lock-down’, please bring your items along, and we will see if they can be forwarded to the charity for distribution before the end of the year. We have been gifted some wool. Look forward to seeing you.
