Next year’s Wanstead Art Trail is set to be the best ever according to organisers, after they were awarded more than £500.

The money was given by area committee one to the Art Group Wanstead for a temporary public art commission, but they think it will arrive too late to be used on this year’s show.

Tomasz Wlodarczyk, chairman of the group, said: “It’s a nice surprise and we can certainly do some stuff with it. We try and make the show better every year and this will help us do something extra for next year’s art show.”

The art trail has been running for four years and last year it attracted work from more than 200 artists from Wanstead and the surrounding area.

“We will have to discuss what we are going to do with it at the next meeting, most likely a public installation of some sort,” Mr Wlodarczyk added.
