The Knit and Natter group at Broughton Library have recently celebrated their first birthday! There are about 10 people who regularly attend each week who enjoy socialising and knitting together.
As well as knitting, the members who attend the group also take the time as an opportunity to take out library books or renew ones they haven’t quite finished! Sometimes during the sessions, they will listen to stories or have poetry readings.
It all started last year with knitting poppies and ever since, a whole array of different things have been wonderfully created. In celebration of their birthday, a display was put together in Broughton Library as seen below in the photographs.
The members who attend enjoy knitting at all different levels and are friendly and welcoming to any newcomers.
One of our lovely librarians, Sandra, very kindly brought in cake for the group in celebration of their first full year. On a regular basis, the library will also provide tea and biscuits.
One member of the group stated: “most of us didn’t know each other before joining the group. A couple of us didn’t realise that we had been in the same school together over 50 years ago!”
The members of the group shared their favourite things about joining Knit and Natter, placing emphasis on the social aspect of the sessions. One person said: “it’s nice that we learn together”, as well as another stating: “my favourite thing about knit and natter is socialising and doing something practical at the same time. It’s a lovely little social group.”
When asked to sum up the Knit and Natter sessions in 3 words, the group collectively decided upon: “friendly, funny, and fabulous!” Aura Libraries couldn’t agree more!
Aura are so pleased to see the group celebrating its first birthday and would like to thank them for sharing their thoughts.
