I’m bored! Not an uncommon cry from the kids during the school holidays, but help is at hand (and it doesn’t cost anything either).
The weekly Aylsham Country Market, held every Friday morning in Aylsham Town Hall, is offering youngsters of all ages the chance to learn the ancient and noble art of knitting during the Easter holiday.
Market Manager Debra Kidd explains, “As well as offering some fantastic homemade food at the market, our producers also include some very skilled craftspeople. They will be on hand at our market on Friday 12th April to help teach young people how to knit, or if they already have the basics, how to improve their skills. We’re calling it Clickety-Knit!”
Debra is asking that children are accompanied by an adult but they in turn can join in the fun or, if they want to relax while the kids clickety-knit, there is a café at the market where you can sit and enjoy a cuppa and cake.
Aylsham Country Market is open from 8.50am to noon and prospective Clickety-knitters can just turn up at any time on 12th April. There’s no need to take any wool or needles as these will be provided.
Aylsham Country Market is a cooperative of local producers. As well as a great selection of crafts, it also offers a wide variety of cakes, savouries like cheese biscuits and sausage rolls, desserts including bakewell tarts and lemon meringue pies, plus soups, eggs and even local goats meat. There’s also a range of plants, fresh vegetables and fruit.
