TO PROVE the word community in Clare’s Stour Valley Community School is there for a reason, work created by some of its students has been put on display in one of the town’s shops.
Students from the school’s textiles club – Saskia Gordon, Beth Strellis, Harry Conway, Chloe Megeath, Eleanor Allen, Shannon Haines and Millie Walton – have used recycled materials, fabric paint and a special sowing technique to create the bunting, which has now gone up in Hare’s Tail, in Clare High Street.
Hare’s Tail owner Diana Sharp said: “Our intention is to provide as many opportunities as possible for students to understand and experience first-hand the role and importance of business and enterprise in the life of their local community.
“We hope that this will eventually extend to providing real work experience and potentially employment for students from the school,” she added.
Teacher Emma Rowe said some of student’s work was being exhibited at the library. “It promotes the students’ creative side,” she said. “They have produced some amazing stuff.”
