Nifty knitters who are busily crafting for the Dereham Carnival are being asked to drop off their woolly creations at the town council offices.

As part of the festivities in the town on Sunday, July 16 certain places are going to be yarn-bombed. This is where street furniture, trees and buildings are decorated with knitting to make a colourful display.

A small army of knitters have been busy with their needles and previously were able to drop off their woven wonders at the Little Gallery in Norwich Street, as it was the Carnival headquarters.

But now as gallery owner Judy Rogers has retired the committee would like knitting to be left at the Dereham town council offices on Quebec Street.

She said: 'The staff there are looking forward to the knitting arriving.'
