The knitted and crochet Poppy Project in 2016 was so much appreciated by residents and the wider Community that the Nunthorpe and Marton Knitters agreed that the 2017 display would be even more spectacular. The target this year is 10,000 poppies, and angels for Christmas. We are grateful to Nunthorpe Parish Council and NE Homes for generous grants and Boyes at Coulby Newham who gave us a generous discount to enable us to reach this target.
In addition to the displays we did last year at Nunthorpe Railway Station and Nunthorpe War Memorial, we intend to have a display at Nunthorpe Methodist Church and Nunthorpe Oaks Care Home.
There are several knitting /crochet groups in the area as well as people knitting at home.
Recently we have started a new group at Nunthorpe Methodist Church on a Thursday evening 7pm -9pm . This has made a good start but would welcome more people to join us . You will be made very welcome and as well as knitting we natter and have refreshments. We also have wool and knitting needles.
The regular Tuesday morning coffee morning at Nunthorpe Methodist Church has a knitting table and everyone is welcome here too.
