Those Barley Knitters are at it again! If you are driving through Barley, Barkway and/or Great Chishill throughout December look out for the post boxes!
For the fourth year in a row the post boxes will be decorated with hand knitted festive scenes from snowmen to the nativity to an enormous knitted Christmas tree complete with knitted decorations, outside the Barley townhouse.
As usual the barley knitting group want to raise money for charity.
Arthur Rank Hospice Charity supports people in Cambridgeshire living with an advanced serious illness or other life-limiting condition and those who need end-of-life care. Its ‘Outstanding’ services are provided free of charge to patients and their families to help make every moment count.
A highly valued member of our Barley village community was resident there during November, her whole family has been shown respect and been cared for by the wonderful staff at the Hospice and we all wanted to support this excellent charity. Sadly Alison Stacey lost her long and bravely fought battle with cancer and she will be missed by all.
