More than 500 pieces of artwork have been donated for the first Friends Of Morston Church Affordable Art Sale due to be held from May 4 to 6.

Organiser and FMC trustee Sandra Morris stated:  “We have had a fabulous response from donors.

“Which means that there is a huge variety of pictures for sale, most of them by recognised artists.”

For as little as £1, art lovers can purchase original paintings, with most pieces priced under £50.

Ms Morris said: “It is a great opportunity to snap up some really good art, and to help a local charity dedicated to keeping the village church standing."

The donated pieces, range from works by prominent North Norfolk artists, to watercolours of boats in Blakeney Harbour and striking modern oil paintings.

"There is something for everyone", Ms Morris added.

Glandford-based Bishop and Miller are sponsoring the sale.

Manager Kevin Lines said: “We are delighted to support such a worthy cause in the community.

"Churches are part of the scenery here in North Norfolk and it is our duty to preserve these buildings if we possibly can."
