Members of the North Arm Cove Stitch Gatherers group have put their heads together to come up with an initiative to encourage an interest in sport by young students about to enter High School.

THE BIGGEST MORNING TEA, THAT IS! You've still got time to whip up that prize winning tea cosy. And don't forget the exhibition of wearable art - we're looking for hand made interesting items that can be worn or used as an accessory.

Join the Stitchgatherers Craft Group at the Community Hall on Saturday 4 May at 10am. There will be raffles and auctions, plus the judging of the tea cosy competition. All proceeds go to the NSW Cancer Council.
