Nimble fingered Morley Elderly Action Craft Group have devised a stunning banner on a harvest theme.

Responding to a call by Morley Community Church, they have designed, knitted and sewn the banner in readiness for harvest celebrations.

All the items have been hand sewn or knitted and then carefully stitched on a brown canvas.

The banner will be displayed at a harvest celebration and supper being organised with the church as part of the International Day of Older People.

Morley Community Church minister Rev Captain Stephen Wright said: “I want to express the heartfelt thanks from members of the community church and town residents to these dear pensioners for their many hours of outstanding work and incredible craft skills in producing this seasonal banner.

“It will be appreciated by many people in Morley this harvest time.”
