CLYDESDALE knitters have been picking up their needles for peace as part of the Wool Against Weapons Peace Scarf project.
The project will use a seven-mile long pink scarf to link the Aldermaston and Burghfield nuclear weapons manufacturing sites in Berkshire on August 9, with a “Scottish Mile” down the Royal Mile on June 28.
Biggar knitter Janet Moxley said: “The UK Government will decide whether to renew the Trident contract in 2016.
“The knitters and crocheters taking part in this project don’t want to see £80 billion spent on more weapons of mass destruction.
“Using “yarn bombs” as a fun way of protesting against nuclear bombs has really captured people’s imagination.”
