Craft group unveils new wall-hanging
A craft group has celebrated its birthday with a new wall-hanging on display at a community hall.
Click Clack Craft members have spent more than six months putting together the new piece of artwork, which celebrates the sixth anniversary of the group.
Started by Community Voluntary Services Tendring (CVST) volunteers, members get together once a fortnight on a Tuesday to do various crafts from knitting to diamond art and card making.
Patricia Hitchcock, a member of Click Clack Craft, said: “This group began six years ago giving members of the community a space to do all types of craft.
“It’s a warm and friendly space where members are always willing to help each other and enjoy their craft over a cup of tea and a chat.
“The wall-hanging represents all the talent of the group and gave everyone a chance to take part and be involved.
“It celebrates the success of the group, which saw everyone support each other through Covid and come back together again to continue that friendship and enjoyment of crafting.”
The wall-hanging was unveiled at CVST’s Sam’s Hall on Tuesday, November 11, by CVST chair Brenda Ellis.
Brenda said: “It was lovely to be invited to Click Clack Craft and unveil the fabulous wall-hanging the talented members have created.
“It’s a wonderful piece of art we are proud to see on display over the fireplace in Sam’s Hall at our hub in Rosemary Road, Clacton.
“This group is a great example of volunteers creating and leading a supportive space for the community to get together and enjoy friendship and company through a shared interest.
“Well done to all the members of Click Clack Craft who created this brilliant piece of art.”
