Moors Valley – Knit a woolly winter warmer for the Gruffalo’s Child!

Gruffalo's-Child-with-borrowed-scarf-at-Moors-Valley-Feb-2017With winter upon us the Rangers at Moors Valley are asking for help to keep the Gruffalo’s child snug when the snow falls fast and the wind blows wild. They want everyone to join them in knitting a huge scarf to keep her warm on her winter adventure.

This year the Park is planning lots more Gruffalo surprises but the Gruffalo’s Child needs to stay warm until they happen.

“Families across the country love Julia Donaldson’s ever-popular storybooks. They all know that the Gruffalo’s Child ignores her father’s warning and bravely tiptoes out into the snow in search of the big bad mouse,” said Countryside Interpretation Ranger Katie Davies.

“We want to help her on her travels. It can get very cold in our woods. We all have scarves to keep us warm so we thought we should create a giant scarf to keep her warm too – but we really need everyone’s help to get it finished before it snows.

“We’ve put knitting needles and wool in the Visitor Centre and we’d love as many visitors as possible to knit us a square or two, or you could knit one at home and bring it in. Just add your section to the end of her scarf to make sure the Gruffalo’s Child stays safe and warm this winter.”

Your contributions should be around 10cm wide. Squares that cannot be used will be donated to be made into dog blankets at Battersea Dogs Home.
