The fifth annual Whinburgh and Westfield Arts Festival to be held on 20-21 September at St Andrew's Church, Westfield, has attracted a wide range of exhibits from local amateur artists.

The festival, organised to raise badly needed funds for the two churches in the villages of Whinburgh and Westfield, will include paintings, prints, photography, ceramics and jewellery from local artists.

Organiser Liz Cooper said: “We have both regular and new exhibitors this year which I am sure will add to the appeal of the event. The church at Westfield provides a wonderful backdrop for the displays and we are looking forward to seeing a good turnout.

“Two exhibitors who have proved so popular with visitors are bead jewellery designer Caroline Munnings and pewter designer Hazel Aldridge. Caroline will be demonstrating her work during the festival. Both the jewellery and the pewter make great presents and we are sure that they will attract a lot of interest again.
