We need your hearts!

Love the Yorkshire Dales? Enjoy knitting, felting or crochet? Can you keep a secret? Then we need your help….

We’re working on a special project in the Yorkshire Dales to make people feel happy! Fresh air, beautiful views, friendly people, great food and drink, brilliant places to visit all help, but we’d like to do something extra to make people smile.

Two years ago, I encouraged everyone to display Lost Sheep in Yellow Jerseys which delighted our visitors. Last year we saw brightly coloured bunting throughout the Yorkshire Dales. We’d like your help to do something a little different this year. We can’t tell you everything yet and would like you to keep this a secret for now, but if you decide to help, you’ll be among the first to know what’s going on when we’re ready for the Big Reveal! We need as many hearts as you can make by the 16th March! They should be made out of wool and can be knitted, crocheted, felted or even cut out of old jumpers. They can be any colour, and any size from 2 – 12 inches (5 – 30 cm) high. It would be good if you could add a string to hang them by.

Your details will not be passed onto anyone else and you will be emailed with more details towards the end of February so you’ll be the first to know what’s happening!
In the meantime, please encourage your friends to knit, felt, crochet and cut – but ask them to do it secretly!

Remember, we need your hearts by 16th March.

Please send them to: Susan Briggs, The Old Mill, Millgate, Masham, HG4 4EZ or take them to Mashamshire Community Office, 7 Little Market Place, Masham, HG4 4DY. For more information visit: www.dalestourism.com/hearts.html
