Knit Witts

We are a group of ladies who meet on Friday afternoons at each other’s houses to knit, crochet and do needlework, making garments to send to three charities. We also have 8 ladies who prefer to work from their own homes. The materials for these ladies are provided by our group. Our finished work is currently sent to:-.
The Samaritans Purse Charity, where our garments are sent all over the world to reach many needy children.
The Queen Mother’s Clothing Guild which is a clothing and linen charity formed in 1882 and distribute items of clothing through a number of other charities.
Northampton General Hospital when we knit garments suitable for premature babies.
Anyone wishing to join us or to donate new or odd bits of wool please contact Mary.

Barby Reading Group

Do you like reading? Would you like to join us in our discussions on the book chosen for the month? We are a friendly group, not at all highbrow, and are looking for new members as several have moved away. We meet on the last Tuesday evening, and also hold a couple of social events during the year.
