And as a result 130 hand knitted new baby blankets have been delivered to the Maternity Unit at Salisbury District Hospital.

Diocesan President Rosie Stiven said:

"With on average 200 newborn babies every month, we need to keep the hospital supplied.

"The staff in the Maternity Unit gave us a very warm welcome and were most grateful for the blankets which had been knitted by our members from across the Diocese and given with love.

"We were told 'the Mums just love them'!

"So a huge thank you to all our knitters for your skill, time and wool - but keep
those blankets coming please!"
