The pattern, available from Theresa or Pauline, is very simple, and we are asking for single stars (no need to sew two together and stuff as the pattern suggests) white, cream, yellow or gold colours to be used. Pauline has ordered yarn if you need some please get in touch. We are meeting on 29th October for an afternoon of knitting and chat.

Eco Tip - Take the #BillionSeedChallenge.

The Climate Coalition, of which A Rocha UK is a member, is asking everyone to join them in planting a billion seeds across the UK up until 30 October (the eve of COP26). The challenge launched on 23 September as part of ‘Great Big Green Week’ invites communities to come together to brighten up their local area and be part of planting a billion seeds across the country. Could you get the church or street involved? It won’t be hard to find a verge, park, playground or church yard (please ask permission) that needs livening up with some natural colours! For more info, see: https://together.org.uk/2021/09/13/billionseedchallenge/

A big Thank You from Kay Aitkin and Derek and Nesta Hearn for the lovely Harvest Gifts delivered to them by Paul Hayward. The kind thoughts from Central were much appreciated.
