Artistic youngsters are exhibiting their work to the public in Ely.

Arts Development in East Cambridgeshire (ADeC) and Ely Hereward Rotary Club once again joined forces to hold their annual schools art competition.

Young people aged 4-18 from schools across East Cambridgeshire were invited to grab their pencils and paintbrushes and get creative.

The work was judged by a team of professionals with prizes awarded to the top three entries in each age category.

Tindalls supported the exhibition by providing art materials to the lucky winners and many other local businesses contributed towards the other art material and raffle prizes.

The young people’s work is now on show at the Babylon Gallery, in Waterside.

Caroline Cawley, marketing manager at ADeC, said: “There are clearly a lot of talented young people in East Cambridgeshire and we’re really pleased to be able to showcase their work.”

The exhibition is running until Saturday (January 25) and is open from 12-4pm everyday.

Entry is free, although donations are welcome.
