A COMMUNITY project to design new artwork for a church is gathering momentum.
Dozens of volunteers have already come forward to help design a piece of art to celebrate the unveiling of a new entrance to Lepton Methodist Church.
And locals still have a chance to get involved with creating the masterpiece, which is based on what they think sums up Lepton as a place to live.
Local artists Jan Yates and Bronwyn Morris have spent months designing the piece with the community, which will go on display in the nearly complete glass-fronted entrance to the church.
They have held several creative workshops with local people, groups and schoolchildren and are set to hold a final session before the design is unveiled.
Barry Lee, senior steward for the church, said: “People have come up with some really good ideas and the final image will be the result of that process.
“A lot have had ideas based on Lepton’s history so maybe that will play a big part in the piece.”
The final workshop takes place today (Saturday) at Rowley Lane School from 9am-noon and everyone is welcome to attend.
