During Lockdown this year local costume charity Gladrags started a project encouraging local people to make a community bunting resource. This Saturday they hired The Bevy and invited volunteers along to sew the bunting together.
Armed with sewing machines and irons they put together ten x 10 metre strings of bunting that people and local groups will be able to hire for community events.
The strings of bunting are all different, coordinated by colour and pattern - from traditional red, white and blue to vintage and tie-dye styles. The event was the first time many of the volunteers had been out so by having the space to themselves they were able to offer a safe socially-distanced environment. The Bevy and volunteers made a selection of savoury snacks and cakes to keep the volunteers fed and watered.
