An art exhibition to launch a new fund raising idea for Thurston’s New Green Community Centre will open this evening.

The centre’s Thurst Coffee Shop will launch its Art on the Green project from 6pm to 9pm tonight with work by Bury father and daughter team Michael and Francesca Apichella. Their paintings will be on display for two months but work by other artists will be on sale in the centre’s Sunlounge for tonight only.

Organiser Rob Davie said: “The idea is artists can display their work there for two months and 15 per cent of any sales go to the coffee shop.

“We’re looking for other local artists to exhibit their work for two months.”

Interested artists can contact Rob on 07554 279687 or at

The centre is in New Green Avenue, Thurston, and entry to tonight’s exhibition is free.
