Sarah Royston, who has made arts and crafts a focal point of the Wilbury Community Café ever since it began in 2013, always comes up with surprising activities enjoyed by young and old alike.

The community presented her with a mix of knitted clothes and shop clothes, as well as two blankets created by Chris Taylor’s knitters.

Sarah told the Comet: “It’s absolutely lovely. I didn’t expect this at all. It made me feel so happy to be part of this amazing community.”

Sarah’s due date means she won’t be at the March café, so she has received the gifts early.
