THE CRAFTY BELLES – a village crafting group update

The Heritage Bunting Project

Maggie reports this is coming along well and is growing in length very nicely. Recently, a children’s workshop was held in the Bell for Mums and their children to make some pennants with Maggie and this was well supported and everyone did really well. Plenty of time for those who wish to add to the bunting as Maggie will be collecting for the rest of the year.


The Great Paxton Tapestry Challenge!

We are delighted to report that the project is going very well and we are lucky enough to have quite a lot of lovely stitchers working on pew cushions that have been created by the design team. Because the challenge is to create 40 x metre wide cushions, we could do with more people to stitch so that we can complete this project within a two year period.

Please contact me if you would like to join us… Diane James at or call me for a chat on 01480 406938. We’d be delighted to have you join us!

We are still waiting to see if the National Lottery, communities fund will offer a grant to us for some of the cushions but we’re delighted how many have decided to sponsor a cushion for personal commemoration.
