Ursula in Unit 12 at our Sherwood Forest Arts and Craft Centre is wishing everyone a wonderful woolly Christmas this year with a fun event in November.

Granny Square Christmas Tree Sunday 3 November at 11am

Ursula and her knitting volunteers will be revealing the Big Granny Square Christmas Tree in the courtyard of the craft centre. You can take part in the charity competition "How many squares did we use to make the tree?" with all proceeds going to the Alzheimer's Society.

The tree has been created and lovingly decorated by crafting volunteers and is a tribute to all of the grannies and grandma’s that have had the time and patience to teach many of us how to knit or crochet.

The centre is also full of seasonal hand-made gifts that are completely unique and perfect for Christmas and the café is a popular retreat after a brisk walk in the nearby forest.
