Avenues East Community Support Services (CSS) supports children and young people with various disabilities, offering social and daytime activity groups, short breaks and events.

Sacha Feeney-Howells, project co-ordinator at CSS, said: “Art plays a large part in our daytime services and we wanted to be able to show off some of the amazing art work we all produce rather than just squirrel it away.”

Louise Powell, a project co-ordinator in Needham Market, said: “It was so lovely to see so many friends, family and supporters at our first Art Exhibition.

“We would like to say a big thank you to the community centre and especially Martin Spurling for letting us exhibit our art, after such a busy Easter weekend with Needham's own professional art exhibition.”
