Christmas knitted together in Redditch

Ross Crawford 23rd Dec, 2017

A HAND-knitted nativity scene created by Diane Hill has raised £102.70 for the Redditch Remembered in Thread project.

Diane is a member of the Redditch Recorded Through Art Group and the raffle for the nativity scene was won by Cookhill Baptist Church.

The Redditch Remembered in Thread project is to create a 10ft wall hanging celebrating the last 100 years of Redditch, recording the influences the events that made the town what it is today.

Anyone who wants to get involved in the project can do so by contacting the Redditch Standard.

The nativity scene will be on display at Cookhill Baptist Church when it holds its Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services, both at 10.30am.

All are welcome.
