A NEW fund to start up community projects in Woodbridge, Melton and 30 neighbouring parishes has agreed to splash out on an arts project being launched by Farlingaye High School.

Waves is a community arts project set up and led by Farlingaye's head of art Mary Lawrence. It will involve up to 250 of Farlingaye's students working with an artist to produce artworks which will be displayed in the community across Woodbridge.

The Woodbridge and Melton Market Towns Initiative (MTI) Partnership set aside £10,000 this year for a special Community Chest to support local projects, and this week it presented Farlingaye High School with a £1,000 cheque.

"Farlingaye is thankful for the support from the MTI and its Community Chest that will enable us to launch this exciting project that will take art into the Woodbridge area and give the students a greater awareness of the role of artists in the community," said Mary Lawrence of Farlingaye High School.
