Knit & Natter Group Celebrates Tenth Birthday

By Published January 17, 2020

A GROUP of fundraising knitters celebrates its tenth anniversary at Acklam Library later this month.

The Knit & Natter Group was launched on January 26, 2010 as a library initiative to bring people together, and has gone from strength to strength.

Now an independent group, they meet every Tuesday at Acklam Library & Community Hub, chatting and knitting for charity.

Over the last 10 years they have raised over £5,000 for local charities, selling hand-knitted baby clothes, dolls and blankets at reasonable prices. Items are sold from the hub throughout the year.

  • If any previous members would like to catch up with the current group, a celebration will take place at the Library on Acklam Road TS5 7AB on Tuesday, January 28 from 2pm to 3pm.

  • If you are interested in ideas, radio is way more pure than television. You’re not distracted by somebody’s nose or hair or posture. You can really see how someone thinks and penetrate to the essence of who that person is. – Terry Gross
