Wanstead-based knitting group Social Knitworks will have a stall in the porch of Wanstead Methodist Church, Hermon Hill, on Sunday 23 January.

As well as displaying and selling their craft items (many of which will be discounted in their January sale), there will also be a range of free cakes available to encourage people to come along and meet with others from the community.

The event, which will take place from 11.30am to 1pm, is open to all.

“There is no obligation to attend the service (which starts at 10.30am), but all visitors are, of course, welcome to the service as well. Hopefully this will be the first of a monthly series of events at the church,” said Liz Hickson, who set up Social Knitworks in December 2018.

“We knit and crochet for a variety of local charities and projects. When we make a sale, 100% of the purchase price is donated to a local cause. Going forwards, we’re hoping to work with a number of local partners for the benefit of the community overall and we’re really excited to be working with Wanstead Methodist Church as they plan their community-focussed events.”
