A painting of Downham railway station’s iconic signal box scored a local artist the People’s Choice Prize for the first ever Downham Art Trail.

Sue Bates was caught by surprise when she was presented with her gift voucher during a watercolour class at Framin’ Arts, who provided the prize. She said: “I’m delighted to have won.”

Downham Market Arts is planning to build on this year’s success in 2017. Find more details on the Facebook page www.facebook.com/Downham-Market-Arts-UK
