AS a precursor to Art Around Downham, which is taking place in May, a children's art workshop is being held next week.

With the aid of Bizi Lizi, of CBeebies fame, the workshops will be held at the village hall, Downham, from 10am to 4pm on Wednesday and again on Thursday, April 17.

They are open to children aged four to 11 and will provide art and craft fun, which will enable children to make a piece of wall art which will be displayed at the May exhibition.
