Jumpers and hats for the Fish and Chip Babies in Africa: Hope Community Knitting Group has been busy knitting with love for babies in Africa, wanting to bring hope to a desperate situation. These babies are sent home from hospital wrapped in newspaper because the families are too poor to provide clothes for them, hence the name Fish and Chip Babies. If you would like to know more about the knitting group, please feel free to come along to the Masham Methodist Church school room. The group meets every Tuesday from 2-4pm.
