Bar Hill Knit and Natter

Back to Activities

This volunteer-run group for women meets for knitting, chair-based exercise, tea, biscuits and friendship in Bar Hill every week.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • it’s a good way to meet new people and make friends;
  • there are lots of experienced knitters who can teach you the basics – learning a new skill is good for the brain;
  • it’s a supportive and inclusive group – even if you are having a tough day, there’s always someone to listen.

“I get two buses from Girton every week – I never miss Knit and Natter!”

What to expect

This well loved & well attended group meets every Thursday at 1.30pm in The Octagon in Bar Hill for knitting, chair-based exercise, tea, biscuits & friendship. The group often knits items for charity – baby hats and mittens for The Rosie Hospital or blankets for the homeless.

Sue, the founder, has lived in Bar Hill for many years and ensures everyone keeps an eye out for each other. Not only does the group ‘knit and natter’, there are outings, social events and meals organised.

No need to book, just turn up. New members are always welcome – you don’t have to be a resident of Bar Hill to attend.

More information

Knit and Natter is hosted by Bar Hill Church and though there is an inspirational quote or short reading at the start of the session, the group is for people of all faiths and none.

The Octagon at Bar Hill Church is fully wheelchair accessible with parking nearby.


There is a suggested donation of £1.50 to cover costs.
