A well-known watercolourist will be holding a special exhibition of his work at Beeston church in north Norfolk.

John Hurst, from Sheringham, visited the church's flower festival last year and has since completed a watercolour of the site, from which fine prints will be taken.

The original painting will be on sale at the exhibition alongside a new collection of his maritime and Norfolk studies with an opportunity to reserve prints.

Over the past 12 months the church has been raising funds and obtaining grants to enable it to install a much-needed disability toilet.

Mr Hurst will make a donation towards the church's campaign from the sale of the painting, and also donate the profits from the sale of the prints taken from it.

The exhibition will be open on Saturday, May 4 and Monday, May 6, from 10am to 4pm, and on Sunday, May 5, from noon to 4pm.
