Members of a community knitting group have continued to produce items for under privileged children and premature babies. 

For the last year, members of Exmouth Knit and Chat group have continued knitting or crocheting at home and now restrictions have been lifted, the items have been collected and sent to a number of charities. 

Organiser Sandra Witts has taken several bags to Christian Response to Eastern Europe who distribute them to Moldovan children. Some items have also gone to youngsters in Africa and premature babies in south west hospitals. 

The group will also be knitting again later this year for Pete’s Dragons and other local charities. 

This has left members needing more wool and readers of the Journal are being urged to donate any they are not using to the group. 

Anyone who can help is asked to ring Sandra on 07999 274788
