TIME is fast running out for people in and around Tenbury to visit an exhibition that has been acclaimed as a spectacular success.

There are just a matter of hours remaining for people to visit the displays in St Michael’s Church.

It started three weeks ago in the run up to the commemorations of the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

Tony Penn, who represents Tenbury on Malvern Hills District Council, told the Town Council that the exhibition had been a spectacular success.

“The intention was that it would end on Monday, November 19 but because of the level of support that was extended until Friday, November 23,” he said.

Exhibits were put together by church members and local volunteers who had been working on the project for most of the year.

The exhibits include clothes and other memorabilia from the early part of the 20th century.

One of the exhibits paid a special tribute to the ‘Canary Girls’,’ the young women including some from Tenbury and the Teme Valley whose skin was stained yellow as a result of working in a munitions factor at Rotherwas in Hereford during World War One. The exhibition closes at 5pm tomorrow.
