Dear Anne
Carbery Machine Knitting Club, Christchurch was founded on the 3rd of March 1981 making it 30 years old this month. The first meeting was held at the home of one the members in Carberry Avenue, Southbourne, Bournemouth. As member numbers increased, the club moved to Community Halls in the Christchurch area.

Meetings are held fortnightly on Tuesday evenings from 7.00 pm to 9.00 pm at St George’s Church Hall Annex in Jumpers Road, Christchurch. New members would be very welcome and the contact telephone number for further information is 01202-481676.
