Up and coming artists led the way in this year’s Matlock Bath Pro Loco art competition.

Organisers at Matlock Bath Parish Council were especially pleased to receive more than 60 entries from young people.

Nearly 300 members of the public voted for their favourite in each of the four categories, crowning Alan Piggott, of Wirksworth, the overall winner.

He said: “I am shocked. I have never won anything before.”

His painting, A View from the Station Bridge, will be displayed with the previous 31 winners of the competition in the Conference Centre at Masson Mills.
