NEW craft sessions are on offer in the Harleston area, building on the success of existing sessions.

Fortnightly drop-in Knit and Natter and Crochet and Chatter sessions where a cup of coffee and a slice of cake are offered in return for a donation to cancer charities have proved a winning formula for Sara Whiting, with £200 raised this year already.

Now Sara is to expand the range of activities on offer, continuing the informal sessions and adding more structured two-hour and whole day sessions and extended courses.

She hopes more people from the town and neighbouring villages will take the chance to brush up on existing skills or learn a new hobby.

Some of the activities will continue to be free, while some of the workshops, led by experienced local practitioners, will require a small fee.
