A SCULPTOR braved last week’s dismal weather to showcase the tricks of his trade in Royston.

Paul Bainbridge took centre stage in the town’s corn exchange when he recreated Jenny Suckling, his son’s girlfriend, in clay in full view of the public.

He said: “It’s been quiet, I apparently picked the worst week of the year to do it – everyone is away on holiday – then it poured with rain.”

Despite the downpour, his 25-year-old model enjoyed the experience.

“It’s been fun. I have been learning all the time,” said Jenny.

“It’s been all right – the rain today came straight down so we didn’t get wet!”
