Residents of Hartington Gardens Sheltered Housing in Buxton demonstrated their artistic skills to help create a giant banner for this year’s Buxton Festival Fringe.

The stitched plastic panels were produced during a special workshop for the banner, which will be displayed at the Pavilion Gardens bandstand on July 7 during Fringe Sunday, a free showcase of Fringe events.

The workshops, the brainchild of Fringe community artist Gaye Chorlton, are also being held in local schools.
