During the at home days Alford Craft Market gave the people of Alford and the surrounding villages a fun and creative community project! We had the idea of a really Big Garland of multi coloured Pom Poms to decorate the tree in the main Market Place in Alford. Each pom pom has a label attached where people put their name and a message to a friend, or family, or just a message to the world. We sponsored 240 free pom pom kits. People liked the idea so much we ended up with 400 pom poms!
Our pom poms were on display in the Market Place, Alford. Made by the people of Alford and the surrounding villages during our at home days in April 2020. Sponsored by Alford Craft Market and with thanks to the Chester & George Share & Care volunteers (now know as Alford Hub), The Wool Factory Alford and Ann and Julian at Pom Pom HQ. Here is a video of the tree and garland.
Mum says "Took my daughter Pippa for a walk through the market place today for the first time in weeks and I didn’t tell her about the Pom Pom tree, when she spotted it, it made her day and she had the biggest smile on her face 😊"
