This picture is a wonderful tribute from local artist Emma Joustra to Paul Mitchell, the Founder of The Stone and Eccleshall Gazette, who sadly died earlier this year.

Paul and all at the Gazette have supported and sponsored Stone Festival & Carnival and many other local groups and organisations in recent years

Thanks Emma this is an amazing piece of work showcasing the highlights of many past Festivals, so appropriate to see both Paul and Carol featured within this work of art.

You may have seen Emma's beautifully colourful work on the cover of last year's (50th anniversary) Stone Festival programme and you can find many more examples of Emma's beautiful drawings on her website It's a Colourful Life.
