Monday ladies get crafty for coronation

A seniors group in Shropshire has marked the coronation with a regal display made up of scrap jewellery, sweet wrappers and other bric-a-brac.

The coronation display by the Monday Ladies in Bridgnorth

The Monday Ladies, a group of around 14 women in their 70s, 80s and 90s meet once a week in Bridgnorth.

The group decided to mark the King's coronation in a unique way by creating a window display made from scrap items.

Louise Holland, whose mother Anne Hartill started the Monday Ladies 30 years ago, said: "The ladies wanted to create something that meant coronation to them. So we have a couple of sentries, an afternoon tea, and our own version of the Crown Jewels.

"All if it was pieced together using scrap jewellery chocolate wrappers and Christmas ribbons to name a few."

She said the ladies' work is on display at Bridgnorth Library until May 13 and will then be situated at the cafe in Western Park.
