There was a very good turnout for The Great Tea Party
Some people travelled quite a distance to join Hitchin Stitchin', Festiwool, and Woolly Chic, for a morning of knitting and tea, under the trees in St Mary's Churchyard.
The Art Installation was looking good, with more Festiwool tree huggers in evidence.
Biggleswade Accademy pupils had finished their mass pom-pom wall hanging. Quite what that had to do with the More Tea Vicar theme, I'm not quite sure. I'm sure it made sense to them when they imagined it. It's got more of a party, than vicar's tea party, vibe going
and donuts by Hitchin Girls' pupils, brightened the dull sky
and it was lovely to see the 'tree party' mended and in pride of place, beneath the magnificent Bean Tree.
BOB Radio FM interviewed a member of Hitchin Stitchin' for her reaction on the vandalism that had taken place the day after first pieces of the Installation had been installed.
