Art made by primary school pupils to mark the centenary of the First World War ending was admired by more than 200 villagers in Finchingfield on Saturday and Sunday.
The exhibition attended by Braintree MP James Cleverly, showcased more than 200 drawings and paintings by students from Finchingfield Primary School, Wethersfield Primary School and Great Bardfield Primary School.
Christopher Green, chairman of the Finchingfield and District Royal British Legion, said: “The event was a tremendous success. So much so that we were requested to open the following day. Our feedback has been inspiring and, with the event’s success, each of the schools are keen to organise further collective projects. The art work has now gone back to the respective villages for their local Remembrance Day services.”
