A VILLAGE vicar has come up with a novel way to mark Holy Week and cheer-up parishioners during these troubled times.

The Rev David Coleman, part-time vicar at Steeton-with-Eastburn, has produced his own version of Leonardo da Vinci’s famous fresco The Last Supper.

But rather than Jesus and his apostles sat around the table, the line-up is famous sons and daughters of West Yorkshire.

His multi-media work – inspired by the #frommywindow initiative – has quickly become a talking point in the community. And it has even earned a re-tweet from one of those featured in the piece, the Kaiser Chiefs’ Ricky Wilson.

The Rev Coleman said: “I thought I’d do something to cheer-up parishioners who walk past the vicarage and give them something to consider for Holy Week, such as who would they like to have round their own communion table? These West Yorkshire folks offer everything from magic, sport and politics to music, comedy, poetry, art and theatre.”

The work features – from left – David Hockney, Ted Hughes, Keighley’s own Mollie Sugden, Dynamo, JB Priestley, Kiki Dee, Ricky Wilson, the Brownlee brothers, Alan Bennett, Nicola Adams and Alastair Campbell.

The table is prepared with fish and chips, Yorkshire Tea, Timothy Taylor beer, parkin, local Chamley’s pies, high tea from Betty’s tearooms and fruit from the Fruit Bowl shop.
