Yarn – sharing the love for 700 years

Standard

it is 700 years today since Tring became a Market Town (charter granted 1315) and we’re celebrating for the entire week. Today there will be a service in the local church, followed by a barbeque and a beacon will be lit on top of the church tower. Apparently there are also some fireworks but the blurb says it is a small firework display, so I’m not getting over-excited at the prospect.

There has, however, been a major transformation of the town centre and there are loads of happy people wandering around – because yarn makes people happy and today the centre of Tring is covered in knitting. So, pictures to follow – including one of my own paltry effort (a few poppies – now firmly attached to the church gate).

Is it bird, is it a plane - no it's a park bench disguised as Elmer
