Selena Bragg’s pottery, Christine Norman’s watercolour pieces and Maggie Allen’s oil paintings are exhibited in the Curwens Art Gallery in High Street, and the sneak peak event was hailed a success.

Maggie, who lives in Royston and started painting in 2006, told the Crow: “The preview went very well, lots of people turned up and we all enjoyed meeting new people and having a chat over a glass of wine.”
