Al Saints Quilters display their colourful creations and raise more valuable cash for a worthy cause

Members of All Saints Quilters showed off some of their colourful creations at an exhibition last week.

The nimble-fingered needlewoman have been busy creating colourful blankets for the Children’s Hospice South West.

They went on show at a tea party and sale in the village hall which raised a further £370 for the charity.

All Saints Quilters currently have 21 members and anyone interested in finding out more about the group should contact chairman Margaret Lench on 01297 33009.
