Regular Events

KNIT Together

Posted on: July 24th, 2011 by admin

When: 1st and 3rd Friday of each month, 10.00 am to 12.00 pm.
Where: Library
Who: Both novice and experienced knitters are welcome

If you enjoy knitting and nattering why not come and join the Knit Together group; or maybe you need a bit of emotional support when it comes to decreasing, increasing or turning a heel!

As well as doing their own knitting, members of the group also undertake various charitable projects. These have included knitting soft woollen toys, called ‘Izzy’ dolls, for children who are victims of war, HIV babies, orphans and those who suffer from plain want. Another project saw the group knitting miniature bobble hats for Age UK, who forwarded them to a juice company for their Christmas promotion. The company paid Age UK for their efforts.

When: 3rd Tuesday morning of each month
Where: Library

If you’re looking for a fun way to keep fit and active then why not come and join our monthly ‘Together Wii Play’ sessions. Using a Nintendo Wii, the sessions offer various activities such as playing virtual tennis and bowling, as well as providing a programme of exercises.

Don’t worry if you’ve never used a Wii before as students from Lytham St Annes High School are on hand to help all participants. As numbers are limited, booking through the library is essential – please phone 01253 643900.

Keep fit and have fun as well!
