FREE art workshops are being held to bring the community together.

Winsford residents are invited to share their experiences of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Stories will be transformed into four giant batik flags by carnival arts organisation Cabasa Carnival Arts and Cheshire Dance and displayed in the town centre.

Winsford mayor Cllr Nathan Pardoe said: "Flags for Hope is great way for the Winsford community to share their stories and celebrate their town and its local heroes.

"I'm looking forward to hearing these stories and seeing how Cabasa Carnival Arts and Cheshire Dance turn these ideas into pieces of physical art."

The workshops take place at Winsford Library on February 25, 26 and 27, from 10am to 6pm.

All materials will be provided, no experience is needed and everyone is welcome.

The flags will be unveiled at Winsford Creates Festival on March 19.
