Calling all Knitters, Crocheters and lovers of arts and craft!
Do you love working with materials and enjoy sewing? If so, we need your help to make handmade bunting to hang around the Market House and the railings of the Alms Houses to celebrate the Kings Coronation in May. We can provide some material for bunting and possibly a venue if needed. As part of our pledge to become a more sustainable council, we would like to make bunting that can be washed and reused for other community events.
We are asking you to make 3m lengths of red, white, and blue bunting from fabric that you might otherwise throw away.
Almost half of us in the UK put unwanted clothing in the dustbin, where it currently goes to landfill and it would be lovely to see old clothing, fabric scraps and charity shop bargains upcycled and recycled into beautiful bunting to decorate the town!
We have a template of a flag that is 15.5cm wide and 21 cm deep and some instructions that you can download from our website.
We will need your finished bunting back by Friday, 7th April so we have enough time to put up the bunting by the beginning of May.
Please bring it to our Reception in the Town Council Offices in Church Lane.
