A PAINTING exhibition will be held in the Ribble Valley at the end of the week.

Local amateur artists will display their work at St Mary’s Parish Church in Mellor on Friday.

A painting demonstration will be led by Harry Caunce from 1pm to 4pm with the exhibition being open from 7pm to 9.30pm.

Entry costs £5 which includes a glass of wine and nibbles.

The exhibition will also be open from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, and from 1pm to 4pm the next day.

The exhibition will be followed on Sunday by a ‘songs of praise’ event at the church from 4.30pm. All of the proceeds from the events will go towards church maintenance funds.
