Crafty group creates friendship

THE Childers Social and Craft Group is inviting new members to join their Monday morning activities at the Childers Neighbourhood Centre.

Group co-ordinator Ailsa McIntosh said the group meets weekly for a morning of friendship and art.

She said the group was a great way to make new friends.

“Everyone is welcome to drop in for a cup of tea and a chat while sharing craft ideas and skills,” she said.

“Input from each and every person is valued and welcomed.”

The group appreciates donations of any scrap materials, lace, wool, buttons, crochet and knitting needles which can be left at the front desk of the centre.

The group plans to make the donated items into useful and decorative pieces which will be donated to various charities in the community.

For more information, telephone 4130 4690.
