Knit and natter | 10/11/2017 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Come along and bring your knitting,

Have a natter while you’re sitting,

Or learn to knit with wool provided,

Needles loaned and stitches guided.

Knitted garments are très chic,

So be in vogue and start this week.


Knit and natter is a free activity open to all members. No need to reserve, just come and enjoy yourself!
