While our golf course was closed during the covid lockdown, a talented group of our members picked up their knitting needles and have made excellent use of their free time.
Thanks to Mary Hosking, Robyn Matthews, Lyn Knorr, Anne Grant, Peta Campbell, Mandy Milledge, Barb Plaistead, Michele Elsdon, Sue Gilbert and Lorraine Esipoff, whose joint efforts have helped to makes 7 beautiful, handmade, woolen blankets. These blankets will be donated to organisations supporting asylum seekers and the Westernport Community Support (WCS), a not for profit, community based organisation, in Hastings, supporting families and individuals residing in the Westernport region.
The women plan to keep knitting squares for blankets when time permits and welcome any new recruits. What a great way to utilise leftover wool.
Anyone interested in joining us should contact Mary Hosking or Mandy Milledge for guidance.
