Knutsford knitters asked to step forward

By on August 17, 2018

Knutsford’s knitters are being asked to step forward to help create displays to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1.

Award-winning knitting group Knitsford, which currently has around 50 knitters clicking their needles, is looking for more people to put their skills to good use for the annual display on Canute roundabout.


Bernadette Grantham, from Knitsford, said:

“We have made up small kits of wool and patterns of crocheted or knitted poppies, and if anyone would like to be involved the kits are at Knutsford Council offices on King Edward Street, next to the library or the Heritage Centre on King Street. The kits are free, but we do need contact details of anyone taking a kit and the completed poppies or unused wool needs to be back at these two locations by Friday, October 5.”

The commemorative display will be up for a week before Remembrance Sunday and a week after.

Anyone who is interested in joining the group can drop in at the knitting sessions, which take place at the Deli Boys on Tatton Street from 10am to midday on Tuesdays, from 7pm to 9pm at the White Bear pub on Thursdays, and at Plumleys Plant and Garden Centre in Plumley Moor Road, Plumley, from 10am to midday on Fridays.
