Ark at that! MP unveils painting in children’s new classroom

MP for Buckingham John Bercow unveiled a specially commissioned watercolour at Padbury Pre-school on Tuesday.

The painting, by local artist Lisa Wright, the former owner of Polkadot in Winslow, is entitled The Ark, the name given to the pre-school’s new purpose-built building by competition winner Dr Nina Bursell in April.
