Local knitting artist Tatty Bunting on her way to Wilko to set up a display of two dresses made from Wilko wool and adorned with words from an ‘Older Women Rock!’ group poem –
‘ The power of an older woman
is a paperclip, holding all together.
It is a rebellious piece of jewellery,
a box of coloured feathers
waiting for a moment to flash out.
The power of an older woman
is stamped through her
as certainly as the name of a seaside resort
through a stick of rock ‘
Tatty went on to lead a well-received ‘Arm & Finger Knitting’ workshop in Dance Easy
