Several members of Wath All Saints Branch have started to knit Twiddlemuffs. After reading the article that Elizabeth put in Newsline, I emailed Beth Goss-Hill to ask how we could get them to her and if she wanted loads at once or a few at a time. She Emailed back to say that we could meet at Rotherham Hospital this lunchtime so I took Lilian Beasley with me. Beth was so grateful for the Twiddlemuffs and told us all about her work. We told her all about Mothers’ Union in Sheffield Diocese and I gave her  the latest copy of Newsline.
