The Knitting Circle

In October 1914 the Seaham branch of the Australian Red Cross was established. From the beginning the group was known as the Knitting Circle as the members were prolific knitters and sent many articles to Australian troops on the Western Front.

At the conclusion of WWI, the people of Seaham welcomed back their sons and mourned those lost. In 1921 The Knitting Circle members erected a memorial flag pole to honour those they had lost. Later in December 1921 the Seaham Knitting Circle was disbanded. The memorial is the local site for Anzac Day commemoration.
