Knitting

A stalwart of one of Middlesbrough’s community centres will celebrate her 90th birthday in style next week.

Joan Morely is a regular at the Langdon Square Community Centre in Coulby Newham and has been a member of the Phoenix Knitting Group for 24 years.

A birthday celebration will be held at the centre on Tuesday, April 17 from 1pm to 2.30pm when Joan will be joined by friends and fellow Phoenix Group members.

The Phoenix knitters have held weekly classes at the centre for the last 15 years, and currently has 23 members of whom five are in their 80s and the youngest is just 21.

The group is currently producing quilts for Cleveland Police as part of Project Linus.

The colourful creations are kept in police cars and given to sick and traumatised babies, children and teenagers to give them comfort and security when they are removed from their homes or taken into custody for any reason.
