IF you are familiar with Weobley's Willow Gallery or not, then a visit to one of our prettiest market towns is a must for spring.

Re-opened under new management, the gallery has a distinctly different feel, with a good proportion of the 40 exhibitors on show being members of The Guild of Herefordshire Craftsmen.

Among their number are blacksmith Melanie Evans and rocking horse maker Peter Lyons - who decided to take the gallery on when it closed last September.

Recent HCAD graduate Kelly Woods has one of her spectacular 'jewellery adorned' tables on show (see picture) and there is furniture from Gilbert Crawford, Richard Mackley and Andrew James, and pottery by Pauline Paterson and Mary Kenny.

Art features widely, with works depicting local scenes by David Fry and Barbara Graham, wildlife by Tracy Somerville and oils by Colin Biddle. In addition there is also a tantalising greenhouse and outdoor section to the gallery, which opens daily from 11am.
