A VOLUNTEER-run cafe in Bewdley is displaying the work of 12 local artists as part of its first exhibition since the coronavirus lockdown.

The cafe at St George's Hall reopened to customers last week and launched its first art exhibit in four months, showcasing the work of members from Simply Art Group in Kidderminster.

The group were forced to cancel two earlier exhibitions due to the lockdown.

The four-week exhibition opened on Tuesday, July 14 and is available to view in the Hall Cafe, which is open from Monday to Friday from 10am to 3pm.

Social distancing measures have been implemented and a one-way entrance and exit system is in place.
