Children visiting Glemsford Library are being invited to add their own creativity to a street scene inspired by the famous artist L S Lowry.

A picture, which features the village’s school, church, shops and pubs, has been produced by resident David Gilbert, with youngsters able to add matchstick people and pets to the piece.

“A couple of us went to the Lowry exhibition this year and, when we came back, we asked if a picture of the village, in a similar style, could be made,” said library manager Sue Tolley. “It was finished recently and it is lovely.”

Children can make figures for the display at the library’s craft sessions from 11.30am to 2pm on Sundays.
