Residents join knitting celebration at Burnham’s Marine Cove

The global event is being held this week in an attempt to encourage more people to knit and crochet in public together with others to help community cohesion.


Marine Cove Gardens on Burnham’s seafront held the event over the course of four hours when visitors were encouraged to bring along their needles, wool, chair and a flask and join in!

The event was organised by Burnham community knitting group Yarn Over, who meet regularly at The Princess Theatre.


They approached Sedgemoor District Council’s Community Gardener Jacqui Strong about using the garden for the activity.


Jacqui said: “Sedgemoor District Council was pleased to see the gardens being used, particularly for this novel and inventive event!”


If you are interested in hosting an event in the gardens get in touch by emailing me at or calling the office on 01278 436420.”
