ORIGINAL art work by local painters will be on display at a charity’s annual art sale.

The Manor Trust, based in Old Bedhampton, runs three historic homes dedicated to housing elderly people.

The Elms, The Manor House and The Lodge, were all saved from development in the 1960s by the charity with the express purpose of housing elderly, local people.

Each year the art sale is housed in the spectacular Waterloo Room of the 17th century, Grade II-listed The Elms in Lower Road.

The sale starts today from 2pm to 6pm and the same time tomorrow.

On Monday it runs from 11am to 5pm.

There will be home-made cream teas available all weekend.
