Cromer's 40acts of Kindness - a lesson in giving out not giving up
Held over four days from Friday 7 July, each of the six churches in the Wayland parish group will be adorned with knitted displays complimented with flowers and foliage.
Artistic Director, Lois Gill, a celebrated craftswomen and RHS Chelsea Flower show, three times medallist is leading a team of enthusiastic knitters, gardeners and florists to create a festival around the theme of Creation. Each church will have a different theme from an undersea world to the Garden of Eden. She said:
"Hundreds of knitters, crafters, bakers and helpers are looking forward to seeing the fruits of their labours coming together for our next Blossom & Yarn event.
"Crafted out of knitted squares, some reclaimed from the last event in 2015, full size animals and other objects are being brought to life to depict The Creation. You will be amazed by the sheer scale of creativity. Food for sustenance, food for thought and food for the soul will all be on offer. We look forward to welcoming you."
Work is already well underway, Percy the Peacock and assorted parrots and monkeys have already been created from recycled knitted squares from the previous festival and new patterns that Lois and her team have devised.
There will be activities for children, homemade refreshments and, new for this year, a Market Place for a shopping experience.
Once again the aim of the festival is to bring the six parishes together and create a sense of community whilst having fun, and the funds raised will help ensure that the ancient historic churches remain at the heart of the life and landscape of these six rural Norfolk villages.
