Mencap Link Me Project has hosted a Knit and Natter session at Carrickfergus Library.
The Link Me project seeks to enhance the wellbeing of older people with a learning disability by providing opportunities for them to be included in their community through leisure and fun activities, with the support of volunteers.
Knit and Natter groups are for those who enjoy knitting, crochet, cross stitch and other crafts. They provide an opportunity for participants to share hints and tips, swap patterns, meet new people and learn new skills.
The Mayor of Mid and East Antrim Borough, Councillor Billy Ashe dropped in at the Joymount session to show his support.
