Parish Knitting Group

Formerly known as the "Hats and Mitts" group, it began when a group of parishioners got together to knit hats and mitts for refugee children in Syria.

The group has evolved and now knits beautiful squares, sewn into warm blankets, for Herts Young Homeless to have something warm and cheerful when they are moved into accommodation. We are currrently donating eight to ten blankets a year.

The group normally meets once a month and it is a great opportunity for a chat over the knitting needles.  

Unfortunately, the group is currently unable to meet due to Covid-19 restrictions, but members are still busily knitting to make blankets to donate.

You only need fairly basic knitting skills to get involved and sewists are also welcome to help sew the squares together.

The knitting group has been working so hard, that they recently sold two blankets and donated the proceeds to the church.

If you would like to join, or would like some more information, please contact our church warden, Gill Peplow HERE.

If you are feeling more adventurous, the group has also started knitting hearts, Easter eggs and flowers, to create displays around the church.  If you would like the patterns or to know more, please don't hesitate to get in touch with Gill (see above).

New Blankets

Despite not being able to meet in person the Parish Knitting Group has continued to keep busy and has recently completed these two beautiful and cosy blankets for Herts Young Homeless.
