Visitors to the Curlew Centre, Sutton Bridge, were taken back in time by an exhibition of the area’s history over the last 230 years.

Historical items from Westmere Primary School, Sutton Bridge Golf Club and poacher turned naturalist Kenzie Thorpe formed part of the exhibition by Long Sutton and District Civic Society showing how Sutton Bridge developed as a village from 1780 onwards.

The exhibition was opened by Kenzie’s daughter Fay Archer and it also included more than 100 paintings by members of Sutton Bridge Art Group.

Wendy Jeffries, secretary of the civic society, said: “The hall was never empty of visitors and at times up to 100 people were viewing the exhibits.”
