Photo Selection

Westhoughton's first Yarn Bombing Festival was a tremendous success; two days of colour, entertainment and community. All involved excelled themselves and there were some very impressive displays attracting many, many people over both days. Hundreds of photos were taken. A comprehensive collection of photos from the two day event is now available on our Flick site site - a taster of those photos and a reminder of the event below.

Photo albums from the weekend are available to view on our Flickr site .
