The Horley ‘Knit and Stitch’ group has now been meeting for almost two years and in that time a number of crafts have been pursued, which resulted in cosy, Finnish slipper socks, sweaters, cardigans, crochet work and patchwork quilting.
Our main project currently is the refurbishment of the three 40+-year-old kneelers, which are used in front of the main altar in our village church. Two are being worked on and the third is yet to be started. The tapestry wool we use is very expensive and we are asking for small donations in order to buy more wool; any such would be greatly appreciated.
Why don’t you come along, bring your own work and join us? All skill levels from beginners to experts enjoy a pleasant evening where tips and practical help are exchanged. We meet in the Old School on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month from 7pm to 9pm. There is a small charge of £2, which goes towards hiring the room, but if there are any young, school students who’d like to come along then there will be no charge. For further details ring Sue Patching on 01295 730039.
This is a reminder to all dog owners to ‘Pick Up the Poo’ after your pet. There have been a few instances recently around the churchyard where dog fouling has occurred and this is particularly unpleasant being in an area of special importance to many Horley families.
For information: ‘If you allow a dog in your charge to foul any area to which the public has access you are committing an offence. The penalty for not clearing up dog fouling can be up to £1000 if the case is dealt with by the magistrates courts, or £50 if the owner is given a fixed penalty notice.’
So please be minded to pick up after your pet in any public area – you can collect council provided bags from outside 10 Lane Close so there’s no excuse!
As a result of your generous support, a magnificent total of £400 was raised at the recent coffee morning in aid of Breast Cancer Care.
