Members of the 1st Whaplode Drove Girl Guides enjoyed a craft day and knit-in in 1995.

The 16 girls, leader Linda Wapples and helper Nan Fry spent the morning making pasta photo frames, necklaces and friendship pins.

Then they all started knitting five-inch squares which were destined to be made up into blankets and handed out in the local community in time for Christmas.

Linda said: “This is our first Christmas and we thought it would be nice to do something for the local community.”
