DECORATIVE work on a Ribble Valley chapel came out top at a national awards ceremony.

The paint job at Sodality Chapel, Stonyhurst College, Hurst Green, helped Preston-based Bernard Watson Decorators scoop the Special Interest Award at the Johnstone's Paints Painter of the Year ceremony.

Clare Watson said: "We are absolutely over the moon to have been selected as the winner of the Special Interest category for our work at Sodality Chapel.

"It is a great honour to have our work recognised."
