Clevedon Pier is looking for people to take part in a craft project to celebrate the landmark’s 150th anniversary.

The pier wants to create a snapshot of the pier's history in stitches and is asking people to contribute to the display.

Organisers are hoping to fill a fabric base with images created by the community, using methods such as embroidery or appliqué.

A pier spokesman said: "The project represents in stitches the fabric of people who have supported the pier throughout its history and marks a bright and diverse future."

People can pop along to drop-in sessions at the pier, which are running until November, or they can borrow the equipment and work on the project at a different venue.

The final piece will be displayed in a celebration exhibition, before being added to the archive for future generations.
