A Bassingbourn based craft group has celebrated its first anniversary with an awards ceremony.

Prizes were handed out at the A Crafty Night In event last week for achievements such as most improved crafter and project of the year.

Helen Dunlop, who runs Mummy Duck Designs, set up the group last January and has seen it grow from strength to strength - it now has 16 regular members.

Helen said: “I first started the group in order to give fellow crafters a social place to craft together and exchange ideas, and also to encourage people who wanted to start sewing but didn’t know where to start.

“I didn’t anticipate the fun and friendship I would get from such a fantastic group of ladies.
