A dedicated team of puzzlers at Christchurch recently completed the world's largest jigsaw puzzle. At 48,000 pieces it measures 7.67m x 2.03m and took an estimated 500 hours to finish it.
It was on display in Christchurch for the week after Easter and, with sponsorship and donations, over £2000 has been raised. This money will be divided equally between Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Yorkshire Cancer Research and the church.
Alan Titchmarsh, one of Ilkley's famous sons, was in town to endorse a couple of other local events. He called in to see the jigsaw and dropped a final piece in place.
