A variety of stoneware, earthenware and porcelain was on display at the ceramics exhibition held at St Joseph's Parish Centre, in Cookham Road.

The annual event featured a total of 18 exhibitors with the public invited to browse the various stalls and purchases pieces which took their fancy.

Organiser Les Parrott said: "It gives a lot of the potters who have not exhibited before the chance to dip a toe in the water and introduce the public to their work.

"People are very happy to see handmade goods they can own."

A raffle and live music also entertained visitors.

The annual event raises money for different charities each year, with the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service chosen as this year's good cause.

Founder of the charity, Fiona Devine, opened the exhibition.

Stallholders donated 20 per cent of their takings from the exhibition and a raffle was also held.

The event raised £227.

Charity trustee, Helen Johnson, said: "I think it is fantastic that people will come together on behalf of the charity.

"We are very appreciative."
