Steyning Festival Yarn Bomb competition sponsored by Knitting for All.
The Yarn Bomb is back! We tried this out in 2014 and it proved very popular so we are going to have another go. In case this is new to you, yarn bombing or guerrilla knitting is a type of street art that employs colourful displays of knitted, crochet or woven yarn or fibre. Yarn bombing can happen anywhere form lamp-posts to bicycles, trees to statues. The more colourful the better, this form of cosy art is designed to make us all smile and is just perfect for decorating the town during the festival.

Growing Older, Growing Wiser? Writing Competition
"Growing old is not for the faint-hearted", as somebody said, but obviously it's better than the alternative. Getting older does however bring with it the benefit of a lifetime's experience and it can also have its funny side. We would really like you to share your thoughts on this. So put your observations (funny or otherwise) onto paper or your computer or iPad, and send them to us.
