Church exhibition celebrates 70 year of Queen's reign.

The community of Bishop's Castle is celebrating the Queen's 70-year-reign on the throne with a display at the parish church.

Contributors to the exhibition, at St John The Baptist Church have chosen topics ranging from personalities, events, invention, achievements and developments and personal memories, all with the date range of 1952-20222.

The contributors have all come from the Bishop's Castle community or are members of the church congregation, and most have used photographs, newspaper cuttings or images from the past as part of their panels.

David Preshous, one of the organisers of the display and a member of the congregation at the church said they thought it was fitting to mark the Queen's platinum jubilee year with an appropriate theme.

He said; "Some people have used the royal theme for their panels, others have produced ones on significant events that took place during the 70 years such as the moon landings - with 40 panels it presents a unique journey recalling, many aspects of the 70 years of her majesty the Queen's reign."

Members of the Bishop's Castle food bank have also contributed to the display, which is running until Tuesday at St John The Baptist Church, in Church Lane.

Admission is free but a donation to church funds is optional.
