A craftsman made an impression with his work at a meeting of the Hucknall Rotary Club.

Jack Darrington showed off wooden carvings that included birds and a pair of football boots.

The 88-year-old was a miner for the majority of his working life, however when he retired at the age of 63 he joined Newstead Carving Club and began wood carving.

President Kevin Rostance said: “Jack is a real example of what can be done with hard work and application developing new skills which have proved to be very beneficial.”
