One hundred and one years ago the first train came to Allwood - now the village of Hurstbridge
We're celebrating by yarnbombing a large cyclone fence and making just the biggest patchwork doily you've ever seen. Permission granted, a design created, sponsors found, cord purchased and we've been chugging along since April 2012.
With our 63 volunteers we've tootled a long way. Its an ongoing project - the main outlines are there so now we're finalising the carriages and are beginning to add details. Lots more fun yet!
