BIRRC-D0346.jpg

This single length of cloth commemorates the anniversary of the Ghana Methodist Woman's Fellowship (1931-1971). The design shows trees in green, decorated with details of orange and brown on a patterned blue and black background with a design running along the curved border showing what appears to be trees in brown and orange and blue stars on a black ground. It was presented to the Danford Collection by Sister Evelyn Bellamy from the Walton Record Office in 1985.
