Crafters’ Clubhouse, a network of crafters in Plumstead, teamed up with Plumstead Neighbourhood Watch (PNW) to spread Easter joy to the community.

The residents of Barrington House Nursing Home, Mayfair Nursing Home, Sunnyside Lodge and St George’s Home for Girls were treated to Easter gift packs on Thursday April 6, when representatives from the clubhouse and neighbourhood watch visited their care facilities.

Crafters’ Clubhouse and PNW thanked residents and businesses of Plumstead and surrounding areas for their generous contributions to this initiative.
