A new social knitting and crochet group is being launched by Warkworth Library on July 9.
Make Give Live Warkworth will meet every Thursday at 1.30pm at the Auckland Council Service Centre meeting room, next door to the library.
Organiser Katie Mitchell says that as well as being creative with wool, the aim of the group is to ease isolation and improve mental health with a regular get-together.
“We are very relaxed, there is no pressure to be at every session or make a certain number of items,” she says. “We just want people to enjoy coming, make friends, have a laugh and use their skills for good, in a way that supports their wellbeing and helps people in need.”
