Thornbury Art Club members have been busy during lockdown, despite the challenges posed by coronavirus.

Although their annual summer exhibition has been cancelled, they will be holding a virtual one instead over the August bank holiday weekend.

Chairman Mary Drown said: Like everyone else, Thornbury Art Club has been severely impacted by Covid so we have tried to be innovative.

"Paintings are starting to trickle in, but we can say with certainty the exhibition will be extremely interesting and varied."

During lockdown the group has organised virtual quizzes and art challenges.

Some members participated in the Sky Arts challenge where for for nine weeks different celebrity figures sat for portraits.

Anne McAllister, the group's programme secretary, completed all nine portraits and her depiction of Clare Balding was shown on television.
