Join our friendly book group to chat about books relating to WW1.
During the First World War, women (and men) at home knitted items for men at the front and in hospital. Today we are knitting and crocheting flowers for our community artwork hanging and items to send to charities supporting current victims of war. It doesn’t matter if you can only do a couple of rows, and experienced knitters will be on hand to help. Come and join a drop-in session between 2.15 and 3.30 in the Blue Gallery.
