Keen Knitters at The Forbury Residential Home in Leominster are casting on to knit clothes and blankets for babies to raise money for the Residents Fund.
Shown (left to right) in the photo taken in the themed Paris street brasserie at the Home, Residents Mrs Margaret Smith, Mrs Avril Meredith and Mrs Robina Duggan have formed a knitting group named ‘’The Forbury Knitters Group’’. The knitting group allows residents to relive old memories; to share life stories and generally to enjoy their shared company. Mrs Margaret Smith is actively encouraging other residents to join in, because it evokes some positive memories for everyone and gives them an additional opportunity to bond with each other and with their families.
The Forbury would like to express a big thanks to Mrs Carol Williams, sister of Mrs Avril Meredith, for kindly donating wool and not least our huge thanks and appreciation to Brook Farm (Marden) for very kindly donating strawberries for The Forbury Fete – which is to be held at The Forbury Residential Home on 6th of September, 2pm onwards, to raise money for the Residents Fund and to which there is an open invitation to anyone wishing to come along.
