Easter fun at Knighton Market
Updated 9:25am Monday 21st April 2014 in News
LAST Saturday at Knighton Community Market, Easter was celebrated with a host of special attractions to appeal to the whole family.
The children’s workshop in the Reynolds’ room proved popular, with lots of children having the chance to make a range of Easter related art and craft items including decorated plates, Easter bonnets, paintings and daffodils.
There was also a chance for knitting enthusiasts to help a 'knit-in' as part of the national anti-Trident Wool Against Weapons campaign, aiming to create a 'Knighton peace scarf' to be laid out from the clock tower to the cenotaph in Knighton on July 5 and then joined with other scarves being created across Britain to form one seven miles long to join the nuclear missile factories at Aldermaston and Burghfield in a major demonstration on August 9.
At the market as well as the usual stalls there was a very interesting upcycling stall, with of all kinds of weird, wacky and beautiful items on display. These included recycled glass from10 Green Bottles, lampshades incorporating cassette tape, bowls made from vinyl LPs, containers crafted from floppy discs and flowers crafted from cans and bottle tops. There was also a lucky dip, raffle and music from Rapsquillion, with their own brand of close harmony singing. They donated all the money they raised on the day to Amnesty International.
