Poppy Ladies now Rugrats

The ladies of the Parish of Forster Tuncurry were the driving force in making over 17,000 poppies for the 100th Anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli this year.

With such a motivated and friendly group, the thinking caps were put on and the craft ladies are now making useful items to help those in the community.

So far they have delivered knitted and crocheted rugs, bed socks and shawls to residents of local nursing homes. One of the residents stated “I am so grateful that I have been given a gift which is not only warm, but made with love, for me.”

The craft group meet every Tuesday from 10am-12pm at St Alban’s Church Hall, Forster. No matter what your skill level, you are most welcome.
