A NEW nativity scene created by a local primary school has been unveiled.

The Mayor of Barnsley Dorothy Higginbottom welcomed pupils from Sandhill Primary School in Great Houghton and local artist Amanda Stoner to the town hall for an unveiling ceremony today (Wednesday.)

The students - led by Amanda - used beads and fabrics to make the nativity scene, which includes a baby Jesus and angels.

It will be on display inside the main entrance of the Town Hall until the new year.
