A wealth of artistic talent in one small village was there for all to see when Holbeach St Marks Village Hall staged its first Art and Photography Show at the weekend.

Around half-a-dozen artists and photographers, all from Holbeach St Marks, displayed their works.

Teacher Sally Horne, a member of the village hall committee, said visitors included someone who does picture framing, another who cuts mounts and yet more artists who would like to take part another year.

“I was really impressed,” she said. “It just goes to show how many skills you have got in such a small village. Overall everybody was really enthusiastic, everybody would like to do it again and we have got a lot more skills in the village than we thought.”

Mrs Horne said the idea for the show came from Coun Nick Worth and the committee now hopes it can become an annual fixture or perhaps be staged twice a year.

She said: “It was a really good show.”
