I received some photos from Ronda this week Susanne of articles that I know were sent last summer and have just turned up at the opening day 9th February. Presumably the strike had something to do with this so there's still hope.

There was a large number of parcels received on 9th February and Ronda sent these pictures of some of the goods:

The items on the bonnet of the van were received sopping wet which Ronda thinks is probably a SAPOS issue as there has been a lot of rain recently. Wendy took them home to wash and dry so they'll be okay Christine.

Unfortunately it is a parcel of mine,  35 August flag squares and two Go-Overs. Although I always send my parcels in the Post Office plastic bags and seal them with tape, water will always find a way in if it is stored in a wet place. I suppose it was better for it to be my parcel rather than a new member, as it might have put them off sending again! 

Very likely this is a result of our original Bryanston Branch closing down Christine, plus the strike. Ronda had another huge post this week and parcels are arriving that members sent ages ago - guess they been stored in a wet basement whilst we waited for the new branch to open! Thankfully, this is not a regular occurrence - thank goodness for Wendy!

Christine, I bet they soon dried in the VERY hot sun!
Thanks Christine...fingers crossed. My parcels sent since then have appeared, but not hers

What a wonderful sight.Thank you

And unless they mildew, knitted items are pretty much impervious to being wet.  Don't put woolen items into a hot dryer, but a fresh washing should take care of them.

A few photos of items received on Opening Day 23rd February. Amongst the parcels was a large consignment from Louise Tidman's group of knitters.

(Some more photos of blankets received are in the Blanket Room album)

Wowzer, thanks for posting these photos Christine, the first 4 photos are of blankets made by my group. In photo 6 the pile of blankets on the left side are ours and I can see more of our blankets in the other piles. My ladies will be so pleased to know their goodies have arrived safely. Thank you to all the office volunteers for unpacking and sorting everything. :))))
What a wonderful pile of blankets Louise! Well done to you and your wonderful team of supportive ladies. Just getting them all sewn, packed and sent off is a huge job in itself.

Good to see so many lovely completed blankets.
