Clack & Yak member Brenda said: “Platform is a great place to socialise and learn new skills but most of all it’s about being made welcome – to me it’s ‘the best thing since sliced breid’.

A poem by Clack and Yak member Rena Quinn, reminiscing during lockdown about weekly meet ups:


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
