 If you enjoy knitting and like a mission, get in touch with Barbara Sedassy.  Packages of children’s knits get sent to Mukano County, Uganda on a regular basis from Chorleywood, organised by Barbara in conjunction with gardener Richard Field who travels out frequently to help with community projects .

“We can supply yarn and needles, crochet hooks and patterns” says Barbara. “Small jumpers and hats, baby blankets, tiny knitted teddies or squares for blankets that we can piece together are all welcome.  Richard takes them out and it’s lovely to have the direct connection, we actually see where the knits go and have photos of the children wearing the clothes made in Chorleywood.”
