Members of a social group in a Derbyshire village have been getting crafty in making Christmas wreaths.
The regular Arts & Crafts Group at J28 Church in South Normanton is hosted by Ellie Fessey of Sing Along with Ellie.
Their latest gathering saw members using all sorts of foliage and decorations to create their very own Christmas wreath.
Ellie said: “We started the day Christmas Wreath making at our South Normanton group. We had the pleasure of a very kind sponsor Jackie from McDonald’s.
“She joined our group and learned more about us. Many thanks for your generous donation of £500.”
Ellie continued: “As well as this, three of our wonderful members Gail Elliott, Jack and Neville Hardy handed over £150 from their latest fundraising event for our group.
“You are all so loved by us all, so again, thank you for your constant support and attitude to life.”

Ellie hosts a series of Arts & Crafts Groups, as well as Singing for the Brain sessions, across the area.
