Stockport MP Ann Coffey dropped in to meet a local Heaviley group which has been knitting and crocheting together for four years and has raised over £1,000 for local charities.
The Knit ‘n’ Natter group, based at Compass Point (Stockport Sunday School) on Nangreave Road, meets each Tuesday from 1.30 to 4pm, and has grown from a handful to over twenty five ladies who get together each week to share knitting tips and have a natter over a cup of tea.
Local resident and group member Beryl Manley, who started the group in 2011, said:
“Knit ‘n’ Natter is a friendly group for people who enjoy knitting and crochet or want to learn. Our charities for this year include the Wellspring, Stockport Without Abuse and the Alzheimers Society.”
Ann Coffey said:
“I really enjoyed my visit to the Knit ‘n’ Natter group. Their beautiful hand knitted baby cardigans and other items make lovely gifts. Small volunteer groups like this do a huge amount in Stockport to bring people together and help others.”
