The event will be at their home in Douglas Court, Ely, on Sunday November 27.

Paintings, drawings and sketches will be available, some dating from their student days in the 1950s and going on through their careers as art teachers, to recent paintings.

A few more pieces of potter have been found, made when they were working at Prickwillow Pottery (1975-1995), including some sets of tiles. Derek has made three of them into small coffee tables. One, valued at at least £50, will be a prize in a raffle on the day at 4pm.

Cards from £2.50 by Liz Hunter and paintings by Olga Holbeck will also be available.

For tickets; £10 each, email margot.derek@talktalk.net or call 01353 650302.
