Sandridge Knitted Village gets festive!

The celebrated Sandridge Knitted Village has been given a royal makeover to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.

 

The collection of knitted landmarks and houses around the Herts village of Sandridge will be decked in knitted bunting and feature royal visitors with cake, when it goes on show at St Leonard’s Church, Sandridge on Sunday afternoon (June 12th).

 

The village, which attracts admiring praise whenever it is displayed, includes models of St Leonard’s Church – complete with knitted vicar – local pubs, the village shop, and the sports centre.

 

The village, produced by local knitters, will form part of the church’s summer fete and celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday from 2-5pm.

 

Also included in the event will be crafts, games, stalls, activities by local Scouts, home-made refreshments and a barbecue.

 

Rev Em Coley, Vicar of St Leonard’s, said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming many local people to join in the fun, celebrate the Queen’s birthday and admire the growing knitted village.”
