About the group
About the Group
Strollers group consists of 26-30 members who meet every Wednesday morning for an hour long walk around town, or a short car ride away to places such as Stowe.
The group has been around for a very long time, with previous leaders such as Lesley Suggate, who passed the baton to Sheila and Geoff Dalzell, who did an amazing job pre-covid. I have now taken over the baton since June 2021, it’s slightly different due to rules and restrictions, but we still maintain a walk every week, chatting all the way, with more chat when we have coffee somewhere local. We are a very happy and sociable group.
Knitting not Strolling (2)
As the Covid restrictions have been lifted and we are able to start strolling again we have set aside our knitting needles and disbanded our “Knitting not Strolling” group. Knitting blankets for the Knit for Peace charity has been a great way of keeping busy and keeping in touch within the group.
Our large double blanket was delivered in the autumn and has been followed by two lap blankets – a total of nearly 500 squares. These are now ready to be sent off along with several hats and pairs of mittens. We will miss our knitting projects but are very happy to be back “Strolling not Knitting”!
