The Ely Guild of Woodturners opened its annual exhibition on Saturday, offering a showcase of decorative arts for sale.

The display at Ely Cathedral Centre was opened by retired Ely GP and Magpas doctor Pam Kenny who cut a ribbon.

Gill Marchant, guild member, said: “We’ve had several very good trading days and lots of visitors so we’re very pleased.

“There are a wide range of items on show and on sale, including spice grinders, clocks of various designs, pens, beautiful laced work and finely turned bowls.

“There are also mobile phone stands which are made from 3,000 to 5,000-year-old wood”, she added.

The 10-day exhibition, which also offers turning demonstrations, is free to enter and continues until Monday.
