Wetherby residents are being urged to post their feelings about the town on a church wall.

The Baptist church is calling for people to place words, photographs, paintings and poems on the wall of the Pop-up Church in Church Street.

Minister, Rev Sally Nelson, explained: “We want to celebrate our town and its community and what makes it a great place to live.

“Maybe it’s living near the River Wharfe, the friendly atmosphere, or the way in which our community pulls together.

“Or perhaps you were you born here, and this has always been your home.

“Everyone will have their own reasons for celebrating our town.”

Wetherby Wall will run alongside other ArtSpace exhibitions February 21.

Currently there is a personal collection of handmade quilts and over the next few weeks there will be a display of framed art photographs and paintings.

“We’d love as many people as possible to contribute to the Wall and pop in to see what others have brought along,” added Sally.

“There’s no charge and at the end of the exhibition we will be holding an open day and evening.”
