A new group with the aim of promoting friendship in the Ballybogey area has been formed.
The Benvarden Friendship and Craft Group meet every Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at Benvarden Orange Hall and those involved look forward to honing their skills as well as helping charities in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere.
During the two hours members are taught knitting, crochet and sewing and it is hoped to expand as the group requires.
Organisers have been greatly encouraged by the response so far and would welcome both learners and experienced crafters.
Anyone interested can come along and enjoy a cuppa, share crafts and make new friends.
On another positive side, members have connected with a charity in Uganda which needs baby knits and it is hoped to support this and other worthwhile charities supplying cardigans, blankets etc.
To raise funds for the group members are holding a car boot and craft sale on Saturday, April 12 at Benvarden hall from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
There will be a cake sale, Easter egg hamper, Tombola dn craft stalls.
Tea and coffee will also be available. All cars and tables are £5.
For more information or to book a car/table contact Elizabeth on 028 276 64172 or Margaret on 028 276 64054.
