Crafty centenarians

By Surrey and Hants News in Local People

Winifred Egermaier and Patricia Dyer have a combined age of 200 but that doesn’t stop them being nifty with the knitting needles.

The two are part of a 10-strong ‘Yarn Craft’ group at Pax Hill Care Home in Bentley.

The group is currently knitting hats and cannula sleeves for the neo-natal unit at Basingstoke hospital. They started with the hats, but after a request from the hospital for sleeves, they embarked on another round of knitting.

The yarn craft group is always looking for interesting projects for their talents and anyone with ideas is asked to contact the care home on 01420 525882 or email
