For the last few months the NK group have been knitting and crocheting to decorate the trees and other tree furniture just for fun and to brighten up the area.  They are of all ages and backgrounds and meet informally on a Saturday morning ion the Library.

There are plans for a future display next year. No skills are need – you can be taught to knit or crochet, and the group would love to learn any new skills others have.
