Supporters of a village church are confident their latest fundraising event will be a big draw.

More than 50 East Anglian artists have put their work on display to help raise money for the church in Acton.

There are 210 framed works on show, with another 200 or so unframed pictures also for sale.

The exhibition, which is the 13th to be held at the church, runs until Sunday, September 8.

At weekends, there will be demonstrations of watercolour painting by Kevin Franks and Vernon Lever.

And there will be a chance for art lovers to take away a painting for the price of a raffle ticket.

One of Kevin Franks’ paintings, called Barge at Maldon, is being raffled to boost church funds.

Entrance to the exhibition, which is open from 11am to 4pm Mondays to Saturday and noon to 5pm on Sundays, is free. Refreshments are available.
