"Many hands make light work. We are looking for volunteers to assist in taking down the inaugural yarnbomb creations in Bridge Street East. We will meet outside Coles in Carrier Street (on Rettkes Butcher side) at 1pm on Saturday 1 September. The more people who can help the quicker the job will get done.
We will store them for next year and add to the mix so we extend the coverage. (Those which may not have faired as well will be donated to other causes eg animal shelters.)
As we’ve sat knitting or crocheting, there’s been talk of how great it’s been having a common purpose over the last few months and what a fantastic activity it’s been across all generations. Ideas are already percolating for the next install!
It’s also highlighted how passionate, caring people working together can make a real difference in creating a kinder, more connected community. When good people come together with a common purpose anything is possible.
Thank you Benalla. Let’s continue to pay it forward."
