Warm welcome for WI blankets


The “knit and natter” group of the Landgate Womens’ Institute, which meets once a month, gets a lot of knitting done among all the nattering, writes Joan Jones. Last Monday (January 26) members presented hospital care assistants Mandy Martin, Philippa Parker and Sheila Caister with eight blankets they had knitted for the comfort of patients at Rye, Winchelsea and District Memorial Hospital. Mandy Martin accepted the blankets on behalf of the hospital and congratulated Landgate WI on their valiant effort. She said the blankets will be warmly welcomed by patients, who will take them home when they leave the hospital.
