AN impressive knitted storycase of the scenes of the bible is back home in Hartlepool and is attracting attention as it has done around the country.

Dozens of the small knitted characters make up a fascinating display of the bible from start to finish.

And one which members at St George’s United Reformed Church, in Park Road, had no idea would cause quite the stir it has on tour throughout the UK when they first designed the showpiece.

The display has been driven from north to south and east to west, but is now back in its familiar surroundings of the church where it all started until next week.

It’s been back in Hartlepool a week and church elder Chris Eddowes said the number of visitors and the feedback they have received has been excellent.

Mrs Eddowes said: “I think the main feedback we receive is that it’s a lot bigger than people thought it was going to be.

“When people see the size of it and all of the little characters they are absolutely staggered.

“It’s been all over the country over the last few months but it’s still looking very, very good, it’s in fantastic condition.

“That was one of the main points of us getting it back, so we can make any little repairs that need to be made.”

Minister at the church, Val Towler added: “We haven’t really had a chance to make sure it’s all in good order recently because it’s been on display all over the country.

“But it’s still look great and that’s exactly what our visitors have been telling us.”

The showpiece is on display in the church until this Saturday.

People can visit from 10am-3pm.
