Bollard cozies brighten up Warwick town centre

BOLLARD cozies are brightening up Warwick town centre.

Market Hall Museum volunteer Kathryn Seren has knitted covers for bollards in around the town square, in the form of bees, bears and the museum itself.

The organiser of the Knit and Natter group spent the last few months working on the museum-themed covers ahead of the group’s post-pandemic relaunch.

Kathryn said: “I am really looking forward to starting up the Knit and Natter group again after such a long time.

“Over the last few months I have been knitting these museum themed bollard covers to create some interest in the town but mainly to make people smile.”

In the past, the group has created items for Warwick Hospital and will be looking for a new cause to knit for when the group starts again this month.

Fellow volunteer Alice Williams said: “Kathryn’s dedication to running the Knit and Natter group and her support and kindness to all its attendees has been fantastic.

“What wonderful creations Kathryn has made to relaunch the group, including knitted versions of some of the museum cafĂ© staff members!

“Well done Kathryn we are so lucky to have you as part of our team.”

The group meets every first Tuesday of the month in the museum cafe, from noon to 2pm.

People of all ages, from beginners to experts are welcome. No booking or payment required.
