Widgee Craft Group preparing for Anzac Day

THE clicking of knitting needles was heard throughout the Widgee Craft Group on Wednesday, with members busily knitting poppies for next month's Anzac Day services in Widgee.

With rolls of red and black wool shared across the tables, the production line was fairly rapid with poppies quickly being completed.

Members will continue knitting and crocheting poppies over the next several weeks, aiming for enough to assemble into a wreath dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings.

Meanwhile, next week, clocks are on the agenda for the upcoming Australia's Biggest Morning Tea, which is scheduled for Wednesday, May 27.

There is only 11 weeks to go and members are looking forward to another successful event, raising funds as they "Countdown to a Cancer Cure".

Visitors are welcome and the door is always open at Widgee Craft Group. It meets every Wednesday, 9am - noon, in the Community Complex in Power Rod. Inquiries Alice Burke 5484 9156.
