We wish ARA members who are ill at present God’s healing love.

The trip to the Hook and Kennedy Park on 10th July.

All 35 members who went had a most enjoyable day out. The visit to the Hook, and the history and tours around The Kennedy Homestead & Park were very informative and interesting and the day concluded with a very nice meal at the Horse & Hound. Our thanks to Lynn and Mavis for organising such a great event.


Knitwit News

On Sunday 7th July a group of ladies from Knitting Jazz travelled over from Fishguard and Goodwick in Wales accompanied by two cameramen from the BBC to meet up with our Knitwits group.

The gathering took place in the Harbour View Hotel where everyone enjoyed a few glasses of wine, compliments of Mr & Mrs Chang, and had some interesting stories to exchange about the knitting groups. Unfortunately, as we had such short notice about this event and the group were returning on the 9 pm ferry, we didn’t have a lot of time together. However, they do intend to return again and plan to stay longer on their next visit.

The programme will be shown on BBC Wales sometime in November.

Lizzie and the group wish to thank everyone for the warm welcome they received and have invited us over for a visit.

Once again thanks to the management and staff in the Harbour View Hotel for their hospitality.
