Have your say

TROOPS in Afghanistan are being sent helmet warmers knitted by members of a village group.

Jill Powell, from Braunston WI, said: “The village already sends out parcels to Afghanistan so this was an extension of that.

“We decided to make the helmet liners because they are very popular with troops as their helmets are uncomfortable and it can get very cold. We are now looking for more wool if anyone wants to donate.”
