A TOUCH of Suffolk's best scenery is on display at Ipswich Hospital thanks to a series of new artwork.

Martlesham-based photographer Colin Shaw has donated 12 photographs - each featuring its own Suffolk scene.

The pictures are taken throughout the four seasons and include a poppy field at Bucklesham, winter walkers at Old Felixstowe, Ipswich Waterfront and a boat on the beach at Aldeburgh.

Most of the canvases are on display in the Foxhall Pre-operative Assessment Unit and there are also pictures in the corridor linking the outpatients' entrance to the Foxhall Unit, cardiology clinic and the pharmacy.

Senior nurse Sheila Corcoran said: “The pictures are vibrant, modern and interesting, particularly to our visitors and staff who live and work in Suffolk.

“My favourite is of colourful beach huts at Southwold.”

Mr Shaw, who used to work at The Evening Star, said: “On visits to the hospital I saw there was an opportunity to exhibit.

“I visited the Foxhall Unit and met with staff and we talked about pictures which would be of interest to those at the hospital. I'm told that lots of people have been talking about them, particularly the colourful nature of the photographs brightening up their day.”
