Royal Voluntary Service members have been hard at work creating a fabulous display of ‘Royal Knitting’ for Dorset Libraries.
Earlier this year the RVS started inviting people to knit and craft items to celebrate HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
A spokesman said: “We have done similar projects before, but this one was special as HM The Queen is Royal Voluntary Service’s patron. We have had some beautiful items coming in, made and donated by RVS volunteers and clients, and people out in the community who have this special talent and wanted to be part of this celebration. We would like to thank everybody who has contributed to our project.”
There’s a display at Dorchester Library & Learning Centre initially, and it will then ‘tour’ a number of Dorset libraries before the items will be sold to raise money for Royal Voluntary Service in Dorset and BCP.
The RVS operates a Home Library Service, where volunteers deliver library books free of charge to anybody who cannot easily get to the library; books and talking books are chosen for each person individually according to their personal preferences and delivered every three weeks, combining the provision of new and interesting reading materials with a regular visit by a trusted volunteer. The library is open Monday 10am-5.30pm, Tuesday and Friday 9.30am-7pm, Wednesday 9.30am-1pm and Thursday 9.30am-5.30pm and Saturday 9am-4pm.
