ARTWORK from students of Farlingaye High School will be displayed across Woodbridge thanks to a £1,000 donation from a community chest.

The art project, called Waves, will involve 250 of the school's students working with an artist to produce the work.

The money for the project was provided by the Woodbridge and Melton Market Towns Initiative (MTI), who set aside £10,000 to support local projects.

Mary Lawrence, head of art at the school, said: "Farlingaye is thankful for the support that will enable us to launch this exciting project. It will take art into the Woodbridge area and give the students a greater awareness of the role of artists in the community."

The project hopes to add to the local community and bring the work of the students to a larger audience. It also aims to highlight new and different career options for the students while increasing their skills and confidence.

Mac Miles, of the MTI, said: "The community chest grants are there to support new projects that will improve or develop new community facilities, services or activities and I think the Waves project is an excellent example to follow."
