Tapestries of iconic Lyme views on display at Woodmead Halls

UNIQUE views of Lyme Regis have been captured by a group of ladies who make up the tapestry group of the University of The Third Age (U3A) Heritage Coast Branch.

The 20 framed tapestries are being displayed at the Woodmead Halls so the people of the town can see their intricate work.

The tapestry ladies meet on a fortnightly basis and took two years to complete the set of Lyme views.

The ladies and other members of the U3A gathered at the halls on Friday evening to officially launch the tapestry exhibition.

Halls’ chairman Philip Evans MBE congratulated them on the quality of their work and praised the U3A for the range of activities they organised for the senior members of the Lyme community.

Thanking the U3A for their support of the Woodmead Halls, Mr Evans took advantage of the occasion to also thank his team of volunteers who kept the halls in pristine condition, building on the work carried out by life president Stan Williams who took over the running of the halls in 1993 when it was on its last legs.

The Woodmead Halls will be open on Sunday mornings through the rest of March and April for the public to see the tapestries (10am to 12noon).
