A SERIES of exhibitions has received a £10,000 grant.

Loughton Art Trail was given the money by the National Lottery’s Big Lottery Fund.

From May 12 to June 2 the Trail, part of Loughton Festival, provides a feast of visual arts around the town, with a programme of pop-up displays, events, and hands-on activities.

The grant will be used to create a young people’s art camp and develop a social media presence for the Trail.
