YEAR five pupils at Bishop Loveday Primary School in Banbury have been learning to knit as part of a project on the Second World War.

The children, who are learning to knit squares, have decided to donate the squares to Banbury Animal Rescue and Kindness Service (BARKS). The idea came from Henry Blencowe, chair of governors at the school. His wife Joan has been teaching pupils to knit for the past decade.

The squares have been sewn into small blankets and were presented to BARKS for use in its rescue centre.
