Knitting and Pom Poms

Members of the Time Bank are getting together on Sunday 18th March at the Millennium Pavilion from 1.30-3.30pm for an afternoon of tea and knitting. We invite you to join us to chat in this informal and friendly setting. We are currently making small blankets which were requested for Palliative Care packages to be given out at Hinchingbrooke Hospital.

We will also be starting preparations for the BIG Pom Pom Bomb of the Nature Reserve to celebrate Carnival Week in June, so even if you’re not a knitter you can get involved.

Please bring along any spare wool you have for either of these wonderful projects.

Changing Lives Taster Day – a huge success

What a great event! The Changing Lives Taster Day had a wonderful atmosphere and gave attendees the opportunity to try some of the activities on offer through the programme. We welcomed Joe and Ryan, Falls Prevention specialists with Everyone Health, who were on hand to offer advice. We had Teresa, MS Society, and Julie, Parkinson’s UK with us to give support and sign post people. And of course our fantastic instructors Sam, Mike and Becky leading short sessions. Time Bank members were able to get involved signing everyone in, making sure everyone was refreshed and offering a warm welcome. Thank you to anyone supporting this project.
