Thoughts from category: around fruit towers

the hats have arrived

Thanks so much to all who sent their woolly creations to us here at fruit towers, plus of course to those who sent them via our friends at Age UK. We were momentarily swamped, with not a bit of astroturf to be seen on floor two. Thanks to our crack unit of hat unpackers we are now in good shape, with hats ready to be put on bottles and the most intricate and wonderful hats ready to fight it out for the title of hat of the week. 

There was much unpacking and cooing at the consistently amazing needlework sent in to us.

And we even received packages from the USA and Australia - the Big Knit's gone global. Thanks again to all who knitted for us, we're constantly amazed by how brilliant your hats are. And for all of you looking to get your hands on one, our little be-hatted bottles will be in Sainsbury's from the 21st of November.



a very special delivery

The lovely Elaine and her mum popped in to fruit towers yesterday to deliver Elaine's contribution to this year's Big knit - a whopping one thousand hats. We were busy knitting away at lunchtime when our needle work was blown out of the water by the sheer magnitude of Elaine's efforts. It took her a year and every one of them is perfect. She knits whilst watching the telly and doesn't even need to look at what she's doing. Needless to say we were in awe. 




just up the road...

Just up the road from Fruit Towers is one of the saddest looking window displays we've ever seen. Simply filled with green balloons in various states of deflation this shop is crying out for some love. 


To counter this sad retail display someone decided to lift local spirits and build a block of golden flats.
