A sale of paintings, drawings and prints was held at East Woodhay Village Hall on March 13th and 14th, in aid of St Martin's School and Church in East Woodhay.

"This annual exhibition of work by local artists is enormously popular, and a percentage of every art sale goes to St Martin's School and St Martin's Church. The Artex 10 team, comprising Lisa King, Fiona Coyne, Joanna Thompson, Marion Payne, Laura Ponting, Marge Goldsmith, Jillian Byrne, Antonia Francis and Nicky Pellissier deserve congratulations for organising the event and it was generous of many local companies to donate raffle prizes".

"There was an impressive range of talent on display, and this exhbition has become an important platform for local artists to display their works."

Sir George met Soraya French, who was born in Iran and came to England to study English in Cambridge.

"I have a number of Soraya's works at home, and light and colour are the two most important elements in her paintings".
