Blanket Challenge 2019

As we all know,  blankets are needed by so many of our charities and Greet WI members were happy to pick up their needles and get started with producing their own creations, for the Fistula Hospital and other worthy causes.

 Betty Davies came up with the idea and  22 ladies met at the regular craft group in The White Hart to learn how to knit "the perfect square".

The method  used is to knit a diagonal square and is one of the best ways to make sure that your squares are always the perfect  shape. If you would like to download the pattern you can do so by clicking  here

Squares are then joined and to give them extra strength, Mary Cull is crocheting a border round.

Betty's Inspirational Quilt

Betty Davies and members of Greet WI have put in hours of work to make this beautiful quilt. It was presented to the family of Hollie Gazzard and will be raffled to raise funds for The Hollie Gazzard Trust. 

A big ‘kiss' from Greet WI

The Greet WI walking group know only too well that getting over stiles can be a real challenge, so when an opportunity arose to sponsor a new kissing gate they jumped at the chance. A series of small fundraising events paid for this new gate on the Gloucestershire Way above Greet. 
The Winchcombe Walkers are Welcome group came up with the idea for a ‘Donate a gate’ scheme and the Cotswold Voluntary Wardens installed the 10 sponsored gates, making access to the countryside easier for everyone. 

This is a great example of how voluntary groups can work together to make a big difference. 
“Now, who’s going to kiss me as I go through the gate?”.
