Platform’s weekly Clack and Yak knitting group usually meet up in The Bridge Cafe for a chat and a cuppa whilst knitting, sewing or crocheting. Due to current circumstances relating to Covid-19 the weekly meet up now takes place on Zoom. It is free to attend.

The group is continuing to keep busy knitting items for themselves, family and friends. Members often make things for good causes such as MacMillan Cancer Support and knitting small hats for premature babies. They are also great at offering advice if you are stuck on a tricky pattern!

Here’s what one group member Jean Lawton has to say about the group:

“Clack & Yak is an informal get-together for people with similar interests. Previously when we have met up at The Bridge café (pre Covid and when the building is open) we enjoy the great atmosphere and it gives the group a chance to get involved in other things that take place at Platform.

“So, if you’re interested in learning how to knit or crochet please join us, everyone is welcome!”


If you would like to join the group or would like more information please contact 0141 276 9696 or email margaret@platform-online.co.uk

Do you remember our group?

A hobby of ours was knitting to do

Aran, Fair Isle, we did the lot

It all depended on what wool we’d bought

If a baby was born

A shawl we would make

Although complicated

We never made a mistake

Our mothers had taught us when we were small

Before then we held the hank

Whilst Mum rolled the ball

Sometimes we’d hear of a jumble sale

With stalls of home baking

And sometimes old balls of wool

Made of colours

Old fashioned and new

With shades of rainbow in every hue
