KEEN knitters got together for a natter at the Needlecraft Club, in Havant Library.

Members of all ages, ranging from early 20s to 80, got together for a gossip and to share their work and offer advice to others.

The class is so popular that a second group has been organised at the same venue.

Cathy Wade, 79, from Havant, has been going to the club for more than a year now.

She said: ‘I’ve been knitting since I was a child but I’ve learned so much from the others in the club.

‘They all have different ways of doing things and it’s good to see that.

‘It’s really sociable too. We’ve got a really good group of people and they always have lots of things to talk about.’

Cathy’s group, which meets on Thursdays, is full – but the new group takes place from 10am to 12.30pm on Tuesdays also in Havant Library.
