A grass-surfing cow, a miniature art gallery with tiny hand-painted masterpieces, complex Lego models where you least expect them and beautiful postcard art from artists and residents - these are just some of the sights you can spot on Wanstead's free art trail.

Big shows will be held at Wanstead House, Allan Burgess House for Age UK, Wanstead Golf Club, Majestic Wine Warehouse, Wanstead Library and St Gabriel's Church.

This year there will be pieces produced by children at Wanstead Church and Aldersbrook primary schools.

Founder Donna Mizzi said: "The trail has produced a strong community spirit, created many new friendships, introduced more people from outside the area to our high street, encouraged other local events and helped boost the council's Wanstead Festival."

Free guides, provided by The Stow Brothers, are widely available, or visit: www.artgroupwanstead.com.
