Avon and Bourne Valley Art Exhibition was finally able to celebrate its 10th anniversary - two years late than expected due to Covid.

The event was held at Figheldean Village Hall on May 14 and 15 and attracted more than 300 visitors.

Exhibition spokesman Trevor Woodbridge said: "We were concerned the break would affect our offering with some folk still reluctant to venture into busy venues, combined with the lack of continuity but were pleasantly surprised by the support and enthusiasm shown by both the artists and the public"

A total of 38 works were sold during the exhibition.

The Sue Woodbridge Memorial Raffle of a painting by local artist Frank Grimes was won by Gill Kidd of Durrington.

The Best in Show prize, voted by the general public throughout the exhibition was won by Samantha Biddle who has recently moved to the area.

The event also raised £1100 for the Stars Appeal.
