CHILDREN at St Mary?s School in Henley have begun work on a painting which will be presented to Falaise in Normandy as a gift to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the two towns being twinned.

Visitors from Falaise come to Henley for a weekend every other year and this year they will be here over the May bank holiday when the Henley Arts Trail (HAT) takes place.

The St Mary?s pupils started the Mad HATter?s Painting, which anyone can add to when the bright blue canvas is in Henley market place tomorrow (Saturday) from 10am to 2pm.

From next Friday (April 26), the painting will be available for further additions at the Old Fire Station Gallery, one of the arts trail venues. The French visitors will add to the painting during their visit.

For more information about the arts trail, visit www.henleyartstrail.com or pick up a leaflet from Henley library or the information centre at the town hall.
