YEAR 5 Teacher, Mrs Whymark, has made this beautiful crochet blanket during lockdown!

Mrs Whymark’s wonderful creation is starring in the Ely Cathedral ‘Creative Covid Exhibition’, which is a collection of artwork completed by people from the Ely and East Cambs area during lockdown.

Mrs Whymark said: “As a self-taught crocheter, I have made many a blanket or gift to mark special occasions. So when the call for crafters to send in pictures for the Ely Cathedral Creative Covid Exhibition came from Joss Palmer, I sent in my lockdown blanket, a tangible reminder of rows snatched between Zoom meetings and online lessons – and the resilience needed to complete it!”
