Leaders Meg Nettle and Karen Start delivered a cream tea to each member to say thank you for their work.

They have been unable to meet up in person at the moment because of Covid-19 but have been keeping busy.

Before lockdown, in March the group had 37 participants. On average 25 would normally attend each monthly meeting in the Vestry, to knit, crocket, sew and chat over a cup of tea and homemade cake.

This year they’ve made a variety of items, from knitted red and white poppies to be sold in aid of the Royal British Legion, to knitted Christmas themed items.

They also knit items such as twiddle muffs, gifts to go into shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, and items for newborn babies in Africa.
