Bags given a new 'life'
Leighton Buzzard customer Mrs May Varney has come up with a novel way of recycling plastic Waitrose bags – she weaves then into new shopping bags.
Mrs Varney, who started her unusual hobby a few years ago, has even given lessons in the town at a bag weaving workshop.
Mrs Varney has been a customer at Leighton Buzzard since the store opened in 1973.
