Due to rising costs, the venue for meetings of Cast-ons MKC in Stopsley, Luton has changed. The new venue is The Warden Hill Community Centre in Wycombe Way, Luton. It’s at the rear of The Warden Beefeater on the A6 (LU3 2BL for Sat Nav users). We meet on Monday evenings from 7.30 to 9.30 pm. During the winter it’s monthly and we go back to meeting fortnightly for the lighter evenings. We’re a small friendly club which welcomes new members who need help getting back into machine knitting or those want to start a new hobby. Over the past two years members have knitted for the premature baby unit at the Luton & Dunstable Hospital, made hats for sailors and are currently knitting hats for the army. All members take a great interest in the magazine and try out some of the techniques, or help each other out if they’re having problems with a pattern. For club details call Maureen on 01582-882786, Sue on 01582 450662 or e-mail .
