Blankets - Bridgemead - Bath Inner Wheel
During the long days of lockdown the knitting needles of the ladies belonging to the Bath Club have been busier than ever!
Many smile about ‘Knitting Ladies’ but over many years hundreds of squares have been knitted and sewn into blankets. Traditionally, these blankets are sent all over the world, usually to disaster areas, but in these strange times it has proved impossible to send such goods abroad. Consequently, all Inner Wheel Clubs in Great Britain have been asked to find a local outlet for some of these blankets.
Bath Inner Wheel Club has been fortunate! Bridgemead Care Home has welcomed the gift of blankets for use by the residents when family members are allowed to visit. This is because the area made ‘covid safe’ is part of the conservatory where the windows have to remain open and, although the resident being visited is behind a perspex screen, the room quickly becomes very cold – hence the need for a warm blanket.
In early December Margaret Berry and Jenny Jones from the Bath Club delivered a suitcase full of blankets which were gratefully received by Head of Care, Pam Burford, and her assistant Beverley Hooper.
I have it on good authority that they were put into good use immediately!
