Knitters both local and from further afield put their knitting needles & time to good use by knitting hats for the homeless – an initial Christmas decor idea with further thought for a very worthwhile use.

Our roving reporter Jo Gray met up with local shopkeeper Handmade Studios owner Linda Kirkbride.

Over 130 warm hats will be shared out between a number of homeless charities.
