A COMMUNITY project is giving away gifts to mark a year of hosting inspiring activities, art and exhibitions.

The D Shop in Dewsbury is inviting people to plant seeds to take home with them and to share their words of wisdom with others.

The ‘wisdom gifts’ will be handed out at the shop during Spirit, a free outdoor show in the town centre on Friday February 25.

Elise Rohde is one of five local artists who was involved in the shop’s first project by art group Encounters.

She has returned to the shop to help run the latest free activities.

“It’s about reflecting on what’s happened in the shop over the last year and taking the positive things out into the communities,” she said.

“During Spirit we’ll be celebrating the last night of the theme and giving away the wisdom gift boxes to people.

“We’re hoping to make enough to fill our Dewsbury cityscape by then.”
