Congratulations to our Knit and Natter Group who were awarded this year’s Mayor’s Award.
Cllr Miss Keeley Allin has awarded her Good Citizen Award for 2020 to “The Great Torrington Knit and Natter Group” who have recently formed and meet every Wednesday to knit/crochet and share companionship. The defining moment being the incredible work that went into the fantastic Poppy display in the Town Hall for Remembrance celebrations last year. This was a wider community effort but with the group forming and coordinating the display, it became a breath-taking piece. Cllr Allin said, “I have also received comments about how warm, welcoming and friendly the group is, with some members even travelling from outside of Great Torrington for weekly meetings. Community is what our town thrives on and so I know that this community group are truly deserving of the award”.
