Previous Projects



We sent 36 hats, 5 pairs of gloves, 1 Balaclava and 2 mufflers to “The Mission to Seafarers”.



To commemorate World War I we made a poppy wall hanging which is now hanging in the World War I exhibition in Fort Widley



At one of the meetings we enjoyed making rope bowls with Julia Smee from Highbury College. At first this appeared to be a complicated skill to achieve but once we got going we quickly realised it was fun to do.



The topic for the July meeting was rather unusual. Charles Haskell, the director of the WW1 exhibition, who some of us met when we presented the Poppy wall hanging to him, asked if we could make some barbed wire
